It's the 44th annual Central NY Maple Festival in Marathon this Saturday and Sunday. It all starts Saturday morning at 9 with a Pancake Eating contest. I'll be there eating pancakes like I'm on a timer......that's because I will be.

I'll be eating pancakes against other contestants at the Marathon High School Auditorium. We may be competing against each other but the winners are the charities that we are eating for. All of us have been raising money for every pancake we eat.

Go here to see this year's competitors and the charities that we're eating for. I'm eating for NorthPointe Church's "Wishing Well." The Wishing Well is a fund that is used to help others in need that NorthPointe Church finds out about and is a means to wish them well when crises arise.

I think they do wonderful work and would like to help out this program. To donate to the "Wishing Well" for every pancake that I eat on Saturday morning, go here and click on "SecureGive."   See what NorthPointe is all about here.

The 44th Central NY Maple Festival is Saturday 9-5 and Sunday 9-4. To see everything that is going on.......AND THERE IS A LOT....go here. I hope to see you at the Festival on Saturday morning and as they say "It's a Pancake Party."
