The five Kiwanis clubs in Columbia sponsored the 63rd Annual Kiwanis Pancake Day on Saturday, March 21, 2015, at the Dulaney Ballroom, Columbia College Campus. The five clubs are Columbia Club, Golden K, Boonslick, Little Dixie, and Westside. Members from all five clubs mixed the batter, manned the grills, 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 Benton and Gentry School Builders clubs and Columbia Aktion Club for adults with disabilities.
