The Demopolis City Schools Foundation hosted their annual pancake supper Tuesday evening at Jack’s.

This year, the Foundation sold 315 tickets, which is an increase from last year according to DCSF Director Amanda Barnes. The tickets were $5, and the funds generated from the event will go directly to the classroom grants program. Grants go to fund classroom requests from teachers in efforts to enhance the classroom experience.
