The Ridge Manor Area Crime Watch recently had its annual omelet breakfast.
The chefs cooked 51 omelets. Carol Klocke won the 50/50 raffle, and 11 pints of blood were donated to LifeSouth Community Blood Center.
Three sheriff's deputies helped with the cooking, and county commissioners Diane Rowden, Jim Adkins and Wayne Dukes participated.
Special thanks went to crime watch members who worked to make the event a success, and to the local businesses that donated, including McDonald's, Winn-Dixie, Wendy's, Glavich Produce, Denny's, Burger King and Cracker Barrel.
Proceeds will benefit the crime watch, covering car insurance and other expenses.
