Community members were enjoying full plates this morning in downtown Swift Current, each meal raising money for the local Motorcycle Ride for Dad.

The second annual Flap Jack Friday at J&S Tire was a success despite the dreary weather, cooking up tons of fresh pancakes and sausage inside.

Owner of the local shop Tony Bukmeier, said the event has several objectives, including paying tribute to someone important to the store's history.

"Jack Payne, this is his place, and we want to keep Jack's legacy going," he said. "We thought this is a good way to do it and keep these customers coming in, some of the old timers and some new people."

Every plate handed out cost $5 and was prepared by Swift Current Motorcycle Ride for Dad members.

Mary-Lou Gates, co-chair for the charity, is grateful to the tire shop for inviting them back again to help out and be the beneficiaries. 

"Tony supplies everything and he lets us keep all the proceeds," she said. "It's very generous of him to do that, and it's great for the community, too. It's a good way of getting people geared up and staying all about Frontier Days."
