Start your day with pancakes at ECFE on Friday and Saturday, August 3 - 4

Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) is a Cook County Community Education program that gives parents and children the chance to get together, socialize and be exposed to valuable school readiness skills. And each year at Fisherman’s Picnic, the ECFE parents host a Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser. This year’s breakfasts of all-you-can-eat pancakes, sausage, juice and coffee will be Friday, August 3 and Saturday, August 4 from 7 – 11 a.m.
The cost is just $4 for children and $6 for adults.
Proceeds from the family-friendly fundraiser are used to supplement participation fees for Open Gym and to purchase play and learning equipment for the children of our community.  Open Gym and other activities strengthen the parent-child relationship through messy play, reading books, dress-up, art and more. ECFE also offers time for parents to meet and discuss parenting topics with others while their children are being cared for.
This sharing of parenting issues and ideas has become a very important part of the lives of many Cook County families throughout the years.
“A special thank you goes out to our local businesses for their valuable donations to our fundraiser,” said Early Childhood Coordinator Lynn Sheils.
She added, “Please come out to the Community Center and start your Fisherman’s Picnic mornings with a hearty breakfast while you support the young families of Cook County.”
