ROTARY CLUB PANCAKE DAY

It wouldn't be October without the annual Ardmore Rotary Club Pancake Day!
For the past twenty nine years the Rotary Club has held this event to help raise funds for the Merion Fire Company.
The annual company fund drive and money given by the township don't always cover our day to day expenses.

Thank you again to the Ardmore Rotary Club for all that they do.
