The griddles are warming up and the mouths of Brown County residents are watering in anticipation of the upcoming annual Brownwood Kiwanis Club Pancake Supper.
The 62nd year of the even is bound to be its biggest, and Kiwanis president-elect Royce Blackburn is looking forward to it.
"I think over the years the community of Brownwood have come to appreciate the supper as a social event and by attending they know they're helping local youth-oriented programs," he said. "The people who come appreciate seeing everyone else who is there and it really shows exactly what the city of Brownwood is all about."
The supper is approaching quickly, as stomachs will be filled with fresh pancakes Tuesday, November 4 starting at 4:30 p.m. at the Brownwood Coliseum.
"We're expecting around 3,000 people, not counting those who pick up orders and take them home," Blackburn said. "This is something the club really enjoys doing. It allows other people, city clubs and local organizations to appreciate each others work and show how great of a place this is."
The supper is the single largest fundraiser for the Kiwanis and the money goal is to raise $12,000. Donations are made to Boy Scouts Troop 22, Boys and Girls Club, Brown County Youth Fair, Brownwood Explorer Post, Builders Club, Brownwood Freshman Baseball, C.A.S.A. and many more.
Tickets are still being sold for $6 and can be purchased through club members by calling 325-642-2093, 325-642-0232 or can be picked up at Wendlee Broadcasting.
