AUBURN — Pancakes and sausages are once more on the breakfast menu at the 2018 Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast. The fundraiser, sponsored each year by the Lewiston Auburn Kiwanis Club, will be held from 6:30 to 11 a.m. Sunday, June 3, at St. Dominic Academy, 121 Gracelawn Road. Assistance will be provided by local Key Clubs and the Mid-Maine Lewiston HOG Chapter 1980.

Club President Paul Gauvreau, who joined the club in 1979, said 2018 marks the 60th pancake breakfast sponsored by the local service organization – the breakfast was skipped one year.

He said, “We are very delighted to feature children’s activities at the breakfast.” He noted highlights that will include a balloon artist, a bounce house, face-painting and animals.

Gauvreau said Kiwanis is an international organization with a motto of “Serving the Children of the World.” He said, “Our club supports the children of our community in many ways – sponsoring an immunization awareness program in concert with the Maine Center for Disease Control, supporting the Boys and Girls Club in Auburn, assisting in fundraising for Boy Scout Troop 121, contributing to the work of the Children’s Advocacy Project, which addresses the physical and sexual abuse of children, providing family passes to state parks through local library programs, sponsoring Key Clubs in local high schools and providing college scholarships for area youth.”

Gauvreau said everyone is welcome to the community event that will feature the club’s signature all-you-can-eat pancakes, sausage and all-you-can-drink coffee. “You might also bump into one of our ‘notable’ guest pancake flippers or servers – possibly a local mayor, state senator or other dignitary,” he said.

Gauvreau said, “The pancake breakfast is a true community event, held rain or shine.”

Advance tickets are $6 each. Children age 5 and under are free. 

Tickets will also be available at the door on the day of the event for $7 each.
