Pancake festival set for Saturday
LIMA – The Lima Noon Sertoma Club will be holding its 65th Annual Pancake Day from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, November 6 at the Lima High School parking lot, 1 Spartan Way, Lima. Blueberry pancakes and sausages will be offered. Admission is $ 8 on presale and $ 9 at the door.
Last year, over 2,000 pancake breakfasts were sold. Due to COVID-19, Sertoma club members have socially estranged volunteers and turned Pancake Day into a drive-thru-only event.
“Even then, I think people are still looking to be a part of something, to be a part of the community, and to look for things to do. Pancake Day has been going on for over 60 years, an event for families for generations, ”said Adam Rector, who was co-organizer of the November 7, 2020 event.
This year’s event is also reserved for drive-thru customers. Enter from Jackson Street.
