Middletown, NJ: On Sunday, August 13th, from 8am-10am, many Holmdel families enjoyed a delicious pancake breakfast at the Middletown Applebee's restaurant, where the Holmdel Touchdown Club (HTC) hosted a Flapjack Fundraiser. The food was delicious, the coffee hot, and it was excellent service with a smile by members of Holmdel's Cheer, Dance and Football Teams!  It was a chance for many Holmdel teens to serve their coaches, family and friends a meal, and they did a great job. The Holmdel High School Football, Cheer, Dance Parent Association (HHSFCDPA) volunteers were on site to help with registration and logistics for the event. HHSFCDPA Committee member Colleen Fischer says, "We are thankful to everyone who came out to support our Holmdel teams today! It was a great example of our Holmdel football team slogan; '#Oars IN.'  We had our players, their families, coaches, volunteers and friends all coming together to support the HTC, and that is what made it such a success."  

After serving their assigned shift, many members of Holmdel's football, dance and cheer teams had a chance to sit down and enjoy a meal themselves. A delicious breakfast and lots of fun was had by all! Holmdel resident Larry Luttrell's daughter Isabella is an incoming freshman at Holmdel High School and a member of the Holmdel Dance Team. Luttrell says, "The Holmdel Touchdown Club and all of the kids volunteering did a fantastic job with the breakfast. My wife Renee and I are really excited that our daughter is a part of the program and we look forward to this upcoming football season." 

Stay tuned for the next HTC event!
