Western Bradford Notebook: Senior project in Canton helps out worthy cause
CANTON - It wasn't breakfast time, but that didn't matter.
On Thursday evening, a Canton High School student held a pancake supper at St. Michael's Roman Catholic Church in Canton for a worthy cause - the American Cancer Society.
It was Tifani Bassett's senior project. The 17-year-old junior, her parents, and many friends all pitched in to serve up a mouth-watering menu of pancakes and other delectable breakfast foods.
As I walked into the church basement, I was tantalized by the aroma wafting from the kitchen.
"They have a harvest supper, so I wanted to do the opposite," she said in explaining why she decided to have a breakfast meal.
Tifani said that she chose the American Cancer Society because her grandmother, uncle, and step-grandfather had cancer. She wanted to help join the fight to find a cure.
Helping her out were her parents, Todd and Sara.
Sara said, "I think it's fantastic. Our family has been touched by cancer, so I think she made a very good choice."
Also helping were Tifani's friends Alyssa Black, Emily Ambruch, Addie Atherton-Ely, Kellsy Ross, Jim Ross, Gemma Bardo and Trisha Machmer.
She thanked the sponsors for the event, Moose Lodge, Connie Baxter's Beauty Salon, TOPS Market, Leroy General Store, VFW Post 714, and Thompson Sports and Apparel. She also thanked the church.
She was grateful to CUDD, which provided her $500 for supplies, and another $500 to be donated to the American Cancer Society.
So, if you see Tifani, tell her congratulations on a job well done.
