Kiwanis Of Dalton's Pancake Day Is Nov. 6

Tuesday, October 19, 2021
The annual Kiwanis Club of Dalton Pancake Day is returning this year after taking a year off due to concerns over Covid.  Pancake Day 2021 will include a new location but the same great experience to benefit area kids.

Chris Crossen, who took over as president of the local civic club on Oct.1, says the event is moving to under the City of Dalton’s parking deck behind the Landmark Building and between Burr Park and the historic Dalton Depot. 

As usual, this year’s fundraiser will be held on the first Saturday in November.
Mr. Crossen urges residents to “mark your calendars” for Nov. 6. The Kiwanians will be serving all of the piping hot pancakes and sausage you can eat under the parking deck from 7 a.m.-11 a.m. The menu also includes your choice of coffee, milk and/or juice. 

Tickets are on sale from any member of the Kiwanis Club of Dalton, at a number of local businesses and online at www.kiwanisofdalton.org/pancakes, Tickets are $7 in advance or $8 on the morning of the breakfast.  Children 12 and under can eat on site two for the price of one. "It’s a great value for an equally great cause," organizers said.

Mr. Crossen said the new location will allow Kiwanis to offer a choice between eating at the new location with friends, neighbors and relatives, or to take advantage of a drive-thru option. Either way, patrons will be helping the many local charities helped by Kiwanis, including Key Clubs, Dalton State Circle K, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Northwest Georgia, Georgia Sheriffs’ Cherokee Estate, Whitfield/Dalton Day Care and many more.

My friend and classmate Todd Gardenhire is sadly off base when he lobbies for doubling the pay of the school board.

We could do away with the school board and not skip a beat and that's the truth. Please … all the school board does is hire ... (click for more)
