For those who decide to eat in, they can enjoy all the breakfast they can eat. Tickets are $7 and can be purchased from Kiwanis members or at the door. The event raises funds for educational programs.
Andy Womble, chairman of the Pancake Supper Committee, said the local club held its first pancake supper in 1954.
“It used to be an annual event, but we started doing it twice a year about three years ago,” he said. “Kiwananians all over the country are known for the pancake breakfast. It’s just a tradition that is carried out.”
The by-laws require that 100 percent of money raised goes back to the community. Laurinburg Kiwanis Club gives to youth programs throughout the county, including scholarship programs, the bookshop at Richmond Community College andas the Boy and Girls Home at Lake Waccamaw.
“It is good fellowship. We appreciate everyone for supporting us,” Womble said.
