Get your busy weekend started with a full belly!  The Rome Noon Optimist Club will be “Flipping for Youth” this Saturday at their 58th annual Pancake Breakfast from 6 am until noon at the Rome Civic Center.  An all-you-can-eat breakfast of pancakes and sausage will be served, along with coffee, orange juice, milk, chocolate milk or a soft drink.

Plates will also be available for carry-out, and patrons may take advantage of drive-thru service that will be offered.

Scott Moody, event promoter, attests that he believes that the success of the Pancake Breakfast over the years is due to community support and Optimists’ willingness to be flexible.

Tickets are $7 in advance and $8 at the door.  They may be purchased from any club member or at the Last Stop Gift Shop located on Jackson Hill.  The club will also be selling its famous sausage at a cost of $5 a pound (while the  supplies last).

Optimists raise about $30,000 annually from the pancake breakfast; all of the proceeds benefit youth-related projects around the community

You can get rid of some of those electronic items that you don’t use anymore this Saturday morning at the Electronics Recycling Event to be hosted by the Rome-Floyd Recycling Center at their new location, 412 Lavender Drive.

Items to be collected from 9 am until 1 pm include televisions, computers and all other peripheral equipment.  Appointments must be made in advance; you can schedule yours by calling the recycling center at (706) 291-5266 during normal business hours.

The Electronics Recycling Event will coincide with the local observation of America Recycles Day; it is limited to the first 240 registered.  Appointments must be confirmed to minimize congestion.

The new recycling center will not be open for tours, says Michael Skeen, the Public Works Director for Floyd County.
