Over 1,000 people stampeded to the pancake breakfast of Cochrane Now & Friends this morning (July 10) on the lot of House of Cars.

Once again, the Cochrane Lions served up a top-notched breakfast with a little help from the likes of MP Blake Richards, Mayor Genung, Cochrane Lions Rodeo Queen Riley Larsen and other special guests. 

Partnering with Cochrane Now were House of Cars, CIR Realty Cochrane, Flirt Cosmetics, Bluebird Self Storage, Tim Hortons, Dave Moore Transport & Recovery, and the Cochrane Lions Club.
