UNION — Do you like pancakes and sausage? How about pancakes and bacon? How about pancakes and both? And how about your choice of juice, milk, coffee, and tea to wash it all down with?
Well, if you answered yes to any of those questions or, like a lot of folks, yes to all of them then Mon Aetna Baptist Church is place you’ll want to be this Thursday.
You’ll want to be there because the Union Civitan Club will be holding its annual Pancake Day and serving up pancakes, sausage, and bacon along with juice, milk, coffee, and tea.
Sounds like a great breakfast, doesn’t it? Only the Civitans won’t just be serving all this at breakfast, they will also be serving it at lunch and dinner.
That’s right, thanks to the Civitans you will have the opportunity Thursday to enjoy pancakes, sausage, and bacon along with juice, milk, coffee, and tea during the meal of your choice. Can’t make it to breakfast? No problem, have it for lunch. Can’t make it then, either? No problem, have it for dinner, instead.
After all, good food is good food, no matter what time of the day you eat it, and the Civitans, as they have in the past, will be serving up really good food on Pancake Day.
(By the way, the sausage and bacon served up by the Civitans is homemade by the folks at Midway BBQ who, as anyone who has ever eaten there knows, are quite good at making really good sausage and bacon. The bacon and sausage is cooked up for the Civitans by the Fairview Diner. The Civitans, in turn, make the pancakes they serve in the kitchen at Mon Aetna.)
Furthermore, while indulging your appetite for pancakes, you will also be helping the Civitans carry out their mission of helping other worthwhile organizations in the community carry out their missions.
Pancake Day is an annual event of the Union Civitan Club and serves as its 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.
So there you have it, you get to enjoy a great meal — or, if you are a real pancake lover, more than one great meal — Thursday while also contributing to a worthy cause which contributes to other worthy causes.
With that in mind, be sure to be at Mon Aetna on Thursday from 7-9 a.m. (breakfast) or 11 a.m.-1 p.m. (lunch) or 5-7 p.m. (dinner) and indulge your taste for pancakes for $5 (adults) or $3 (children.)
