CEOGC News: 2012 Merlin Hayes Pancake Breakfast
Posted: Tue, Nov 13, 2012
Nearly one hundred fathers and families enjoyed the 2012 Merlin Hayes Pancake Breakfast held on November 10th at the Louis Stokes Head Start Center. The annual breakfast celebrates male involvement in the lives of their children and brings fathers, grandfathers, uncles and friends together for fellowship and some great food.
The breakfast was started by Merlin Hayes, a long-time CEOGC Head Start employee who saw the critical importance of fathers and other male family members getting and staying involved in the lives of young children. Mr. Hayes passed away several years ago, but his spirit still embodies the fatherhood program at Louis Stokes Head Start.
