AUBURN – The Kiwanis Club of Auburn-Lewiston has perfected the art of turning pancakes into financial support for area services and resources promoting “Children: Priority One.”

Rain or shine, 4,000 to 5,000 people will converge at the downtown Auburn Festival Plaza from 6:30 to 11:30 a.m. Sunday, June 12, for the 48th annual breakfast.

The 84-year-old Kiwanis Club prepares the all-you-can-eat breakfast, which includes pancakes, sausage, coffee and orange juice.

Tickets are available at all Twin City Shaw’s and Hannafords for $5 in advance. All children ages 5 and under eat free. Tickets will be $6 on the day of the breakfast and can be purchased at the big top, located next to the parking garage.

The proceeds will benefit Lewiston and Auburn youth leadership through the high school Key Clubs, eye glasses, museum passes through the city libraries, reading programs at the Longley School and pediatric trauma training.

Chairman Dan Goff, Patti Gagne, Doug Dwinal and John Cronin are planning the event.
