Mason's pancake day will be Nov. 8

The Cincinnati Enquirer

MASON - Batter up! The Kiwanis Club of Mason has begun selling tickets for the 45th annual Pancake Day, a major community fund-raiser and social event.

This year's breakfast will be on a Saturday, Nov. 8, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Mason Middle School.

Pancake Day is sponsored by Blinds Plus and Perkins.

The annual pancake breakfast is one of the club's two major fund-raisers. The club uses the proceeds from the breakfast and from an annual golf outing to support community activities, from the Mason holiday girls basketball tournament to the library's summer reading program to Habitat for Humanity.

Last year, the club served 1,500 people and raised almost $9,000.

"Every dime of that goes back to the community," said Rob Fischer, chairman for the event this year. "We donate a lot of money to middle and high school teams. We also buy a lot of food and clothing for kids."

Donations also fund college scholarships, youth sports and education programs to prevent shaken babies.

The menu will include pancakes, sausage, biscuits and gravy, and a choice of milk, coffee or juice.

Tickets are $5 per person. Children under 3 years eat free. To purchase a ticket, see a Mason Kiwanis member, or call Fischer at 398-4646.
