Bloomington Kiwanis Pancake Days and Scholastic Book Fair
A tradition since 1951, Bloomington Kiwanis holds Pancake Days, along with the Scholastic Book Fair, annually serving pancakes and sausage to over 3,000 people. Pancake Days is held at the BCPA (Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts) building in the lower level ballroom. Pancakes are prepared by Kiwanis members and community organizations on specially crafted griddles insuring fresh, steaming hot buttermilk pancakes, served with sausage, coffee, orange juice and milk. This year Pancake Days are Saturday, February 23 and Sunday, February 24 from 7:00 AM to 12:30 PM. Tickets are available at the door: Adults $7.00 and Children age 5-12 $3.00 (Children under age 5 are free.) Advance tickets are only $6 for Adults. To purchase tickets in advance, contact any Bloomington Kiwanis member or contact the Illinois-Eastern Iowa District of Kiwanis International at (309) 585-2216. The Scholastic Book Fair hours are 7:00 AM to 12:30 PM Saturday February 23 and Sunday, February 24.
Proceeds from the Bloomington Kiwanis Pancake Days and Scholastic Book Fair go toward the club’s signature project of sending local deserving children to Camp Limberlost, as well as other programs benefiting local kids such as Aktion Club, Boys & Girls Club of Bloomington-Normal, W. D. Boyce Council, BSA, The Salvation Army Bloomington IL, and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Each summer, since 1930, Bloomington Kiwanis has sent approximately a hundred 8-10 year olds who have been identified as children who would benefit from a camping experience, to Camp Limberlost at East Bay Camp at Lake Bloomington. Camp Limberlost, and the other programs benefiting local kids, is supported by fundraisers throughout the year including Pancake Days, Mother’s Day Flower Sale, cheese sales, and individual and business/corporate donations.
