Just how many pancakes can you eat in one meal?

Natalie Walton serves up hotcakes at the Ada Public Library on Wednesday afternoon to Leah Conley and Dexter Woods during Pancake Pandamoniam.

Leah was content to eat 3 pancakes, not wanting to spoil her supper.

Dexter, on the other hand, was trying to down 15 pancakes. His record is 14, tied with someone else.

After today, he holds the new record. Natalie is youth services librarian. She organized and led 248 events at the library last year for those from birth to 12th grade. (Monty Siekerman photo)
