Boy scouts from Troop 11 and cub scouts from Pack 12, in an effort to continue their service to our community, volunteered to lend helping hands to the Kiwanis organization in early March at their annual — and very popular — Pancake Days fundraiser.

The scouts helped by clearing tables and making sure that there was enough syrup on each table for everyone to enjoy, and after all the pancakes were served, they helped the remaining Kiwanians break down the tables and fold all the chairs.

Troop 11 is comprised of local boy scouts between the ages 11-18, while Pack 12 is made up of cub scouts in the 1st-5th grades.

This year marked the 63rd year in a row for the Kiwanis Pancake Days fundraiser, which raises roughly $50,000 a year for local Kiwanis programs and activities.

The all-you-can-eat, 3-day event was first held in 1951 and served a few hundred people. Since then, the event has grown to serve thousands of pancake lovers.

Certainly the help from the scouts was very appreciated by Kiwanis members.
