JAMESTOWN (Katie Ryan-Anderson) - Serving the children of the community and the world -- that's the goal at Jamestown Kiwanis. 

To do that, the annual Jamestown Kiwanis Pancake Day is set for 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, May 1 at KC Hall. 

"Pancake Day is the community's fundraiser," said President Amanda Thrift. "All proceeds go right back to helping Jamestown and the surrounding areas."

Last year, the 40 or so Kiwanis members raised nearly $10,000 for organizations like Anne Carlsen Center, Salvation Army, Safe Shelter, Camp Rokiwan, Kids Against Hunger and Key Club at Jamestown High School. 

All ticket sale proceeds benefit area organizations, thanks to a sponsorship from Hugo's Family Marketplace. 

"Hugo's does so much for the community. We're proud to work with them again this year and grateful for their support," said Pancake Day Chair Eric Tuchscher. 

The meal includes all-you-can-eat pancakes, sausage, milk, coffee and juice. To purchase tickets, talk to any Kiwanis member or call 252-1049. Tickets cost $8 for adult, $4 child, free for preschool and under. Bulk discounts are available if purchased in advance. 

Jamestown Kiwanis meets at noon Mondays at Quality Inn & Suites. The club always seeks new members. To learn more, email JamestownKiwanis@gmail.com or visit Facebook.com/JamestownKiwanis
