Fort Scott Kiwanis Club had to do a little rearranging of days for their annual pancake feed.
Because of the frigid weather, the fundraising meal was switched from Feb. 16, Fat Tuesday, to Feb. 23.
“The Kiwanis 100th Pancake Feed hasn’t missed serving the community one year in a hundred,” Mark McCoy, spokesman, said.
For many years, pancakes were served at the Scottish Rite Temple in downtown Fort Scott, then at Buck Run Community Center.
This year, it will be a drive-thru only at the First Methodist Church at Third Street and National Avenue, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m and then from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
“It’s a drive-through only in the front of the church on National,” McCoy said.
“The driveway entrance is on Fourth Street, at the front of the church,” he said.
The cost for pancakes and sausage is $5 a plate.
“Come out and enjoy the pancakes,” McCoy said.”And support a good cause.”
