Pancakes and maple syrup for a good cause

Let’s celebrate maple syrup season with a modified Spring Tonic Maple Syrup Festival.

The Rotary Club of Barrie and the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority (NVCA) is hosting a drive-thru maple syrup pancake breakfast to raise funds for the local community. Pancakes will be accompanied with Tiffin Maple Syrup, supplied by NVCA.

  2. Order your pancakes and other maple syrup treats
  3. Pick a time slot for when you’ll be arriving
  4. Come to the Barrie Legion at your selected time on TBD with empty stomachs.
  5. Drive to safe space (a park, your home) and enjoy your pancakes!

About the Spring Tonic Maple Syrup Festival

Over the past decade, the Rotary Club of Barrie and NVCA has been in a partnership that sees all revenues split 50/50 with each side allocating their portion accordingly.

The Rotary Club of Barrie has been eradicating Polio, helped local communities, alleviating poverty, building equality and restoring peace since 1902. The proceeds from the maple syrup drive-thru event will help the club provide donations to local charities and also allows us to take on self-directed initiatives that benefit the community as a whole.

The Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority owns and manages 11 conservation areas ranging from Essa Township to the Blue Mountains. Proceeds from the maple syrup drive-thru event will go directly to maintaining and enhancing our conservation areas. Projects include maintaining and creating hiking trails and building amenities like wildlife viewing platforms bridges.
