Feeding the funding

Clinton Mayor Scott Maddasion, Jarek Connell and Connell’s father, Councilman Sean Connell, make omelets Sunday to raise money for the Felix Adler Children’s Discovery Center. The annual fundraiser was canceled last year due to COVID and was carry-out only Sunday. Director Sarah Lind said this was the biggest year yet for the omelet breakfast. Discovery Center staff hoped to sell 300 breakfasts, Lind said, but received many more orders. Breakfasts were prepared inside by volunteers that included city council members and county supervisors and delivered to buyers as they waited in the parking lot. Lind said she doesn’t think she could have seated 300 people inside, and last-minute calls for omelets and pancakes put the center over its goal.
