COSHOCTON – Thousands of pancakes were served up by Kiwanis of Coshocton Club members throughout the day on Nov. 7.

The club’s annual fundraiser was held at the Coshocton Elks Lodge and offered people the chance to enjoy fluffy pancakes, yummy sausages, and connecting with fellow community members.

“I enjoyed working with my fellow Kiwanis Club members and seeing the community come out,” said Cole Moody, president of Kiwanis. “It’s been a good time. Hopefully people see that we have fun and possibly think about joining. This is a good group of people.”

Pancake day was held from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Throughout the day the Kiwanis Club members were joined by several celebrity flippers.

“We tried all day to have at least one,” Moody said. “We think its fun to have people come in and see a face from the community that they recognize.”

Also pitching in throughout the day were students from Coshocton High School’s Key Club.

“They are a huge help,” Moody said. “We really appreciate everything they do from taking the money for extra sausages, bringing around extra pancakes, selling the 50/50 raffle tickets, and cleaning up. They are a huge help.”

Two of those students were sophomores Samantha Burch and Ella Duling.

“It’s been fun,” Burch said. “The people are really nice and like to joke around and talk a lot.”

Duling said she enjoyed helping out and they were both looking forward to eating some pancakes.

“They tasted really good last year,” Duling said.

Some of those enjoying a late lunch were second graders from the Coshocton Christian School.

“It’s really fun eating someplace else,” said Leilah Toney.

She and Qwen Saling said the pancakes were so good they tasted like French Toast.

“They are really sweet,” Saling said.

Abel Sapp summed up how good they were with one word – “amazing.”

Moody isn’t sure what makes the pancakes taste so great.

“It might be that we have so much fun making them that it transpires right into the pancake,” he said.
