GREENVILLE — The Kiwanis Club of Greenville, will hold its annual Pancake Day on Saturday, March 19 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Greenville Senior High School cafeteria, 100 Greenwave Way.
Tickets, available at the door, are $5 each for children and adults. A ticket is good for pancakes, coffee and sausage, applesauce, juice, or milk.
This year marks Greenville’s 44th annual Pancake Day, and the first year it will be held in the renovated cafeteria at the high school. This venue allows for a larger, more efficient kitchen space and a better dining area for more guests to enjoy their meals.
All proceeds from Pancake Day stay in the Greenville community to benefit the youth of the city.
The club sponsors the Greenville High School Key Club, a student-led community service organization and an Aktion club for adults with disabilities in collaboration with the Darke County Board of Developmental Disabilities.
The club donates annually to the Greenville High School Auto Tech Program, Darke County Special Olympics, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Shelby & Darke Counties, Fish Choice Pantry and Grace Resurrection Community Center (food and money), Wayne HealthCare (newborn infant car seats) and gives numerous other donations to Greenville youth-oriented causes.
The club honors two Greenville High School Students of the Month and gives two scholarships to graduating seniors annually. Members participate in bell ringing during the holiday season to benefit the Community Fund Drive and operate Gate 5 at the Great Darke County Fair each year. The club also recognizes a Citizen of the Year and a Teacher of the Year.
Sugar-free syrup was donated by the Friends of Darke County Parks.
