Diane Engel: Hot pancakes and cool cars

BEMIDJI — The Senior Activity Center held our annual Pancake Breakfast and Vintage Car Show in June. We would like to thank the Northwest Minnesota Foundation for allowing the use of their parking lot to display the cool cars. Thank you to the Paul Bunyan Vintage Auto Club for bringing their beautiful cars to display.  Thank you also to Don Zeiman for the live music that day, too. The pancakes were hot and the cars were cool. We had a beautiful day and were finally able to enjoy the sunshine after such a long winter.
