This year’s infrastructure improvement project was the construction of an expanded seating facility. The only time we have available for improvements to our infrastructure is from November 1st, to January 31st, or the time “between seasons”. This 3 month time frame is between the end of our Catering for the year and before we start to tap our trees in preparation for another maple season. It is nice to have a slower period to devote our full concentration to improvement projects without interfering with customer needs.
This year, winter didn’t cooperate as much as we would like and our progress was hampered by cold days and lots of snow. Lots and lots of snow.
In the end, the expanded seating facility turned out great. The expanded seating for the Pancake House is wonderful. The room is large and bright with a great view of the sugar bush. It is also big enough that we can display some antique equipment that helps to tell our 100+ year history. Come visit us in Oro-Medonte and see the new building.
