64th ANNUAL KIWANIS PANCAKE DAY
March 26, 2016


The five Columbia Kiwanis clubs sponsored the 64th Annual Kiwanis Pancake Day on Saturday, March 26, 2016, using the kitchen and dining hall facilities of Columbia College’s Dulany Hall. The five clubs are Boonslick, Columbia Club, Golden K, Little Dixie, and Westside. Members from all five clubs mixed the batter, made the pancakes, and prepared and served plates loaded with pancakes, ham, and (optional) eggs from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. Other groups assisted the five clubs – about 150 volunteers from the Lee, Benton and Derby Ridge School K-Kid clubs; the Battle High School and Tolton High School Key Clubs; several Middle School Builders Clubs; and Columbia Aktion Club for adults with disabilities.  

Pancake Day funds raised stay in Columbia – all proceeds go toward organizations and causes that enrich the lives of the kids of Columbia and the mid-Missouri area. The number of diners served this year was 1,191, about 150 fewer than last year, and the total amount raised was 
$22,899.43. Some of the organizations that are partially supported by the funds raised by this event are: Camp Mudd, University of Missouri YMCA summer camp for children; YEZ (Youth Empowerment Zone) to reach under-served at-risk urban youth; Boys and Girls Club of Columbia; Cedar Creek Riding Camp for handicapped children; Camp Hickory Hill – support for persons with diabetes, especially children; Rainbow House for abused children; Ronald McDonald House to provide temporary shelter for families of hospitalized children; and True North – a women’s shelter.

KIWANIS ONE DAY
April 2, 2016


Volunteers from the five Kiwanis clubs in Columbia joined forces at the The Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri on Saturday April 2 to take part in the world-wide Kiwanis One Day project. This project is succinctly described on the Kiwanis International web site: 

"Kiwanis members serve their communities all year long. But the excitement for service really builds in April each year when Kiwanis members come together for Kiwanis One Day—a day of community service that is felt around the world. The entire Kiwanis family—Kiwanis KidsBuilders ClubKey ClubCKIAktion Club and Kiwanis clubs—joins forces for this large-scale service project. Projects fill a specific need in each community and have included everything from building playgrounds to volunteering at a shelter to stocking shelves at a food pantry.”
Students from Tolton Catholic High School Key Club which is sponsored by Golden K also participated, as well as several non-affiliated volunteers.
