Kiwanis To Host Moms On Sunday

It’s that time again: Kaneohe Kiwanis Club is polishing up the spatulas for its 52nd annual pancake-flipping day – also known as Mother’s Day Pancake Breakfast – set for 6 to 11 a.m. Sunday at Ben Parker Elementary cafeteria.

“It’s a major fundraiser for the club,” said president Neil Yamamoto, “and it’s an all-you-can-eat feast of pancakes, eggs, Portuguese sausage, rice and hot and cold beverages.”

While serving as a fun way to start Mother’s Day morning, he noted, the breakfast also supports a great cause.

The local Kiwanis have ongoing community projects, including a partnership with Kaneohe Community Family Center, and leadership clubs at Castle and McKinley high schools, King Intermediate and Kaneohe Elementary schools.

“The kids really benefit from the breakfast as well,” added member Joshua Chang, who advises the McKinley Key Club.

“The proceeds help to support them and help them grow as leaders in their community.”

Tickets cost $7 for adults and $3.50 for keiki age 11 and younger (dine in or take out). Buy them at the door or by calling Chang at 392-3831 or Yamamoto at 864-0080.
