For over a decade, the annual Kiwanis Club Pancake Day has been held at the Wesley Foundation on North Pelham Road. Pancake Day this year will be from 7 a.m.-noon March 8 at the Community Center.

Kiwanis Club member Dick Bell encourages anyone wanting a filling breakfast to purchase tickets for $3 from him or any other Kiwanis Club member. Bell’s phone number is 256-239-3383. Tickets are $4 at the door.

“We’ll serving pancakes and sausage,” said Bell. “You can have your choice of coffee, milk or orange juice. We promise you’ll have a complete and satisfying breakfast when you leave.”

Proceeds will go toward projects the club supports, including youth teams at the parks and recreation department and the International Kiwanis neonatal tetanus program. The club maintains the walking trail at Henry Farm and the picnic pavilion at Germania Springs. It also gives a scholarship to Jacksonville State University to a high school senior from the area.

The local club honors an educator of the month and sponsors Key Clubs at Jacksonville High and Pleasant Valley High.

The Jacksonville Kiwanians meet for a noon luncheon the first and third Wednesday of the month at the Community Center. Jim Wilson is president, ad Bob Ford is secretary-treasurer.

Bell said he’s like to take this opportunity on behalf of other Kiwanians to extend an invitation to join the club. Call him or contact any Kiwanian.

“Since we’ve begun meeting at the Community Center, we decided that’s where we’d start having our Pancake Day,” said Bell. “We promise a good breakfast to everyone. Just come out and join us that morning. There will be plenty of convenient parking.”

Bell emphasized that Pancake Day is a way of helping Kiwanians continue to serve and provide for their community.
