Enjoy pancakes and help a good cause

| November 3, 2015

COSHOCTON – A group of civic minded community members are planning to tie on their aprons and flip pancakes for a good cause.

Kiwanis of Coshocton will host its annual pancake day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 5 at the Elks on Chestnut Street. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door or from any Kiwanis member.

“This is our major fundraiser for the year,” said Tabitha Patterson, president of Kiwanis. “The money we earn from doing this supports all of the events we do throughout the year.”

Kiwanis supports Dollars for Scholars and Special Olympics every year, is working on a shelter project for the soccer fields at Lake Park and recently made a donation to help with a cabin at the local Boy Scout camp.

“The goal of Kiwanis is serving children of the world and we like to try and keep everything here as local as possibly,” Patterson said.

Pancake day also will feature a performance by the Warsaw Elementary Honor Choir around 11 a.m., a 50/50 and a raffle.

“We are trying something new with the raffle,” Patterson said. “Lots of local businesses and individuals have made donations for it. There is a little bit of something for everybody.”

Major sponsors for pancake day are COTC and Interim HealthCare and Kiwanis also receives help on the day of the event from Coshocton High School’s Key Club members.

“It’s unbelievable the amount of support we get from the community,” Patterson said. “We could not do the projects we do without everybody in the community helping.”

Kiwanis meets at noon on Wednesdays at the Elks and the group is always interested in new members. For information, e-mail [email protected]live.com.

“Pancake day is a chance for us to interact with the community and get ourselves out there to talk about Kiwanis and what we do,” Patterson said.
