SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The 67th annual Pancake Day held by the Kiwanis Club of Sylacauga is right around the corner.
This will be the first Pancake held in two years after the 2021 edition was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
From 6:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 5, the Kiwanis Club expects to serve up to 1,500 people throughout the morning with their highly-anticipated Pancake Day at the Sylacauga High School (SHS) cafeteria.
Each individual will be served three pancakes and two sausages to start with according to Kiwanis Club member and Pancake Day coordinator Marty Garrett. You can dine-in or carry out, and if you choose to dine-in you can go back for unlimited food and drinks.
The pancake mix is donated by Southeastern Mills out of Rome, Ga., and the sausage comes from R. L. Zeigler Meats from Selma.
Tickets are available for purchase for $6 at the B.B. Comer Memorial Library and the Sylacauga Chamber of Commerce. You can also buy tickets from any member of the Kiwanis Club as well as Key Club or Builders Club members.
The proceeds go towards many different organizations helping the children of the community including giving a yearly scholarship to a graduating senior from both SHS and B.B. Comer High School.
“This is the big [fundraiser],” said Garrett. “If we do it right, it’s the only one. Our goal is to raise $20,000.”
