This morning at the Applebees in Richland the 6th grade class at Liberty Christian School spent a few hours serving people breakfast to earn money for their trip to Camp Ghormley. The 6th graders have been selling tickets for the last few weeks to friends and families for $7. Of the $7, $2 goes back to Applebees and the other $5 goes to the 6th graders for their trip; they also were able to keep the tips which went into a lump sum and divided among all the students. The purchased ticket was good for three pancakes, two sausage links, and a beverage. All the 6th grade students waited on tables, brought out the food and drinks, and cleared the tables.

As we were talking to Keith, he mentioned that he really enjoys reading these blogs to stay informed about all the events going on in the Tri Cities.
