Proceeds from the Pancake Supper will be used to help fund scholarships for Polk County High School seniors. Each year, the Kiwanis Club of Tryon sponsors four to five scholarships for local seniors headed to college.

The Kiwanis Club of Tryon, incorporated in 1927, has a long-standing history of working to support the health and welfare of children in Polk County and across the globe. Providing lifesaving iodine to developing nations and funding playgrounds at local schools, the Kiwanis Club of Tryon is focused on opportunities to improve the lives of children.

The club distributes children’s books throughout the community, supports Thermal Belt Outreach’s Feed a Kid program; sponsors a Key Club for high school students and Aktion Club, a service club for disabled adults; and supports many other services for children and teens.

“The Pancake Supper is a signature event for our club. We really enjoy the camaraderie and friendship we share as a club and with the many people who come out each year to support our efforts,” Swann said. “We hope to have a big crowd again this year!”

The annual Pancake Supper is one of several fundraisers to support Kiwanis Club’s mission to “improve our community, one child at a time.”
