Kiwanis to host blueberry pancake breakfastPublished 2:00am Wednesday, June 12, 2013
The 33rd Annual Blueberry Festival won’t be the only place to grab a great blueberry treat this year with members of the Brewton Kiwanis Club dropping a few blueberries in pancakes Saturday morning.
The Kiwanis Club is getting ready for the Annual Pancake Breakfast with plans to offer plain and blueberry pancakes during the meal.
Pancakes, with all the trimmings, will be served by Kiwanis members beginning at 7 a.m. in the fellowship hall of the United Methodist Church of Brewton on Belleville Avenue.
Donna Madden, a member of the Kiwanis Club, said the event has become a successful, annual event for the group.
“This is one of our major fundraisers every year,” Madden said. “The Kiwanis Club uses all the funds raised to support children related events. We furnish two $1,500 scholarships to Jefferson Davis Community College, giving one to a W.S. Neal student and one to a T.R. Miller student.”
In addition to providing education opportunities for graduating seniors, the club also works to ensure that young children throughout the community are able to enjoy Christmas regardless of their economic situations in the family.
“We participate in the Christmas Project and provide about 125 children with a chance to do some Christmas shopping,” Madden said. “Each child gets around $70 to shop. We want to make as many children have the best Christmas that we can”
Madden said support of the community throughout the year makes it possible for the club to be as active as they are.
“We appreciate the support the community gives us every year,” Madden said. “Everyone benefits and this is a chance to get a good, hot breakfast and help the community’s children.”
The pancake meal will be complete served with sausage, syrup, coffee and orange juice until 9 a.m.
Dine-in and carry-out plates will be available during serving times.
Tickets may be purchased in advance from any club member or may be purchased at the door for $5 a plate.
