KIWANIS PANCAKE DAY – THANK YOU RACINE
The Kiwanis Club of Greater Racine would like to thank the community for its support of the Kiwanis’ 63rd Pancake Day. The day was a great success and a lot of fun. We also want to thank the hundreds of volunteers and entertainers who made this event possible. Special thanks are also extended to the volunteers from the other Kiwanis clubs in the area: the Kiwanis Club of Racine and the Kiwanis Club of West Racine. The money that is raised from this event is used by the Kiwanis Club of Greater Racine to provide college scholarships for local high school students and to fund other community organizations. The goal of Kiwanis is to serve the children of the community. With the continued support of the people in the Racine community, the Kiwanis Club will be able to continue to fulfill this goal. Thanks again.
President of the Kiwanis Club of Greater Racine
