Pancake Day helps build good deeds for Lincoln County

Published 8:00 pm Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Whether at breakfast, lunch or dinner, pancakes were on many area residents’ menus Tuesday.

The Brookhaven Servitium Club, formerly the Kiwanis Club, turned the State Room into an all-day diner with $5-a-plate, all-you-can-eat pancakes and sausage from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m.

Proceeds from the 62nd annual Pancake and Sausage Day, as with past events, will go to area youth services. The pancake meal in February, combined with a fall Red Beans and Rice Day, goes a long way toward helping pump funds into a variety of youth-related programs in the area.

Included are a couple of scholarships at the Mississippi School of the Arts, annual scholarships for prospective ares high school students and as-needed scholarships for youth recreation programs.

“Anything related to youth services and children” is the focus of the club’s mission, explained Dustin Walker, Servitium president.

We can’t think of a better beneficiary of the club’s programs than our youth. We offer a special thank you to the Servitium Club, and particularly to pancake chairman Ron Donegan, for serving some mighty tasty food and a multitude of good deeds for our community.
