Pancake feast today in Mason

        MASON — For the 43rd year, Mason residents will eat towers of pancakes and mounds of biscuits and gravy in the name of philanthropy.

        The Kiwanis Club of Mason is holding its annual Pancake Day breakfast 7 a.m.-1 p.m. today in the Mason High School commons. Money raised will go to support the Kiwanis' four-year college scholarships given annually to three students living in Mason, and to charities such as Drug Abuse Resistance Education and the Special Olympics.

        Last year, the club served 1,500 people and raised nearly $10,000 for its community projects. Chairman Rob Fischer said, based on ticket sales, the club expects nearly 1,800 people.

        “Mason is a very community- oriented town,” Mr. Fischer said. “Anytime we get a good community event, they're very well-attended.”

        For the second year in a row, the Pancake Day breakfast will have a theme. This year's is “God Bless America.” Mr. Fischer said veterans will bring memorabilia from their war experiences that represent their positive feelings about the United States.

        All money made from the breakfast goes back into the community, Mr. Fischer said.

        To purchase a ticket for $5, see a Kiwanis member or call Dee Schuessler, 398-4646. Children under 3 eat free. Tickets are available at the breakfast.
