Mar Lee School social studies teacher Chris Henke might not have imagined teaching social studies involved feeding locals breakfast, lunch and dinner for a week. But it has.

Henke teaches middle schoolers at Mar Lee, and that involves taking them on a trip to Washington, D.C. The tradition has gone on for a number of years, and in order to fund it, students and parents - and Henke - operate the "Pancake Tent" at the Calhoun County Fair.

The "Pancake Tent" - which actually serves breakfast, lunch and dinner at the fair - has become the fundraiser for the trip, which Henke says has involved as many as 50-60 students from the district.

If you visit the food tent at the fair this week, it's Mar Lee students, parents and teachers who will serve you!
