Kiwanis pancake supper tonight, March 20 at TES

Published 2:01pm Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Members of the Kiwanis Club of Tryon look forward to taking over the Tryon Elementary School cafeteria tonight, March 20 for their annual pancake supper.

The event, which will be held from 5-7 p.m., offers community members a chance to sit down for breakfast at dinner and connect with neighbors they may have not talked to in a while.

While this event fosters community, it also raises funds for projects around the county that benefit children. In years past the fund raiser has helped provide funds to purchase playground equipment and materials needed to allow club members to assist with improvements at school playgrounds.

The Kiwanis Club of Tryon is made up of business and community leaders who believe supporting programs for children will enhance the overall community.

The club sponsors Terrific Kids programs in elementary schools, provides children’s books for local doctors offices and provides scholarships to graduating seniors.
