Kiwanis Pancake Day co-chairs Jim Lees and Bob Welsh said they appreciate the community support of the Annual Pancake Day, May 3, at the Knights of Columbus Hall.
More than 950 persons were served from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., which was about 100 less than last year. While they were eating, Nick Scherbenske pumped the player piano with rolls of old-time music. From time to time various Kiwanis members and the crowd joined in singing along. During the noon hour Tim Burchill played the accordion accompanying the piano.
The Knights of Columbus, Hardees and McDonalds joined Kiwanis in providing the daylong event. Members of the Jamestown High School Key Club assisted the Kiwanis members in serving. Pancake Day is the major Kiwanis fundraiser each year to support several Kiwanis projects of benefit to children, youth and community projects.
Si Liechty, Chuck Axtman, Marv Bietz, Sandy Franke, DeLette and Norman Winkelman delivered Meals on Wheels on May 4.
The Key Club is sponsoring a prom for senior citizens at Ave Maria Village from 6:45 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday.
Jim Lees will introduce Stephanie Isaak, Central Valley Health, to speak at the May 17 Kiwanis meeting at the Lantern Room. She will speak on tobacco prevention, control, new products and changes in North Dakota laws.
