BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Familiar faces and friendly smiles were on the menu along with homemade pancakes, eggs and sausage at the 35th Annual Berkeley Heights Rotary Club Pancake Breakfast  at the Church of Little Flower school cafeteria, a new location for the event.

Among the familiar faces was Army Captain Bill Toft, who just returned home from Afghanistan. "As a Boy Scout, I used to serve at this event," said 29-year old Toft. He was enjoying the breakfast with his father, Dennis, a long-time scouting volunteer and Good Scout Award recipient. 

Preparations for the event were spear-headed by Rotarian, Jim Ramentol. This year the Rotarians were assisted by the volunteer efforts of the Gov. Livingston InterAct Club and Boy Scout Troops.
