MONARCH — There are a lot of pancake lovers in Union County and they got to indulge their appetite for their favorite breakfast — and lunch and dinner — food while helping raise more than $3,500 for the Union Civitan Club.

Thursday, March 23 was Pancake Day 2017, the day the Union Civitan Club makes and serves pancakes along with sausage and bacon to hungry diners for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. As in previous years, the Civitans hold Pancake Day in the social hall at Mon-Aetna Baptist Church, using its kitchen to prepare the food it serves to diners who enjoy their food in the dining area.

An annual event, Pancake Day is the Civitan Club’s main fundraiser of the year. The club uses the funds raised on Pancake Day and through other fundraisers to support a number of local programs including Special Olympics and developmental disabilities.

Civitan Tommy Sinclair said that this year’s fundraiser was very successful, raising more than $3,500.

“It was very successful,” Sinclair said. “This allows us to put support back into the community.”

Sinclair thanked the community as whole for its support of the Civitans and Pancake Day.

“We certainly appreciate the support from the community,” Sinclair said. “This is our main fundraiser of the year and they have made it a success.”

Sinclair also thanked a group of volunteers who assisted the Civitans on Pancake Day even though they themselves are not members of the club.

“I’d like to give a shout out to Torance Inman, Bill Graham, Glenn Hibbard, Kim Calb, and Sam Phipps,” Sinclair said. “They are not Civitans but they stepped up and volunteered to help.”

Sinclair also gave a special thank you to Mon-Aetna Baptist Church for again allowing the Civitans to use its social hall and kitchen.

“As always there’s our agreement with Mon-Aetna who lets use their facilities each and every year,” Sinclair said. “We appreciate them and all they do for us.”
