Annual Kiwanis pancake breakfast set for Saturday


Advocate staff report
The community can help support around 40 local projects by attending the 67th annual Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast Saturday, April 13, in the Montgomery County High School cafeteria.

With around 58 members, Mt. Sterling’s Kiwanis Club is celebrating its 70th year of serving the community.

Alex Conrad is the current club president and Brandon Wells and Bianca Weaver are the chair and vice chair of the event.

All money raised during the breakfast stays in Montgomery County and helps support a wide range of local projects, particularly those that help underserved children and elderly, said Kiwanis member Darrell Mandrell.
Some projects and organizations the club supports include Sterling Community Food Coalition, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Hope Hill Youth Services, helping MCTC students with costs for tools or testing, scholarships for Montgomery County High School students, quarterly meals delivered to underserved individuals, providing smoke alarms and infant car seats for those who can’t afford them and being a sponsor for the new gym floor at Dubois Community Center, Mandrell said.

Members of the high school’s Key Club will also help with the breakfast. The Key Club is sponsored by Kiwanis, which mentors and supports the students in their efforts to help their peers and the community.

The breakfast will be from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. Those who attend can enjoy pancakes, bacon, eggs, biscuits and gravy, milk, juice and coffee.

Breakfast attendees will also receive a program filled with advertisements of individuals and local businesses that support the event.

Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for children under 12 years old. They can be purchased at the door or from a Kiwanis member.
