Bloomington Kiwanis Pancake Days
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 (lower level ballroom). Pancakes are prepared by Kiwanis members and community organizations on specially crafted griddles insuring fresh, steaming hot pancakes, served with sausage, coffee, orange juice and milk. This year Pancake Days are Saturday, February 21 and Sunday, February 22 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 Kiwanis Illinois-Eastern Iowa District Office at (309) 585-2216. The Scholastic Book Fair hours are 7:00 AM to 12:30 PM Saturday February 21 and Sunday, February 22.
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 benefitting local kids such as Aktion Club, Boys and Girls Club, WD Boyce Boy Scouts of America, Salvation Army and Children’s Miracle Network. Each summer, since 1930, Bloomington Kiwanis has sent approximately 100 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. This year the club, because the Limberlost experience is so popular with teachers who recommend the children, has increased the number of campers to 128. Camp Limberlost is supported by fundraisers throughout the year including Pancake Days, Mother’s Day Flower Sale, Peanut Days, cheese sales, golf outings and individual donations.
