Girard community supports robotics team with breakfast for world championships

The breakfast was held at theĀ Girard Italian Fraternal Home

GIRARD, Ohio (WKBN) - For the fourth year in a row, Girard's RoboCats have won the right to compete in the robotics world championships.

So on Sunday, locals supported them at a pancake and sausage breakfast.

In the robotics club, the students build and pilot a robot. But, if you ask anyone on the team, they'll tell you who's really behind their success.

"We wouldn't be able to do any of this without [the community]. Our budget is $40,000 a year, and we fundraise about half of that. Without the community, we wouldn't be able to do this," said RoboCats senior Ian Kenneally.

All of the money raised at the breakfast goes toward the team's trip to Detroit for the world championships, which runs from April 25-28.

The breakfast was held at the Girard Italian Fraternal Home with coffee from Joe Maxx.
