POCATELLO — The Pocatello Kiwanis Club will host the 52nd annual Bing Hong Pancake Breakfast from 7:30 a.m. to noon June 29 and 30. The location is the Bing Hong Pavillion in Tydeman Park, at the corner of North Eighth Avenue and East Young Street, just north of the ball fields.
Breakfast is a hearty serving of pancakes with syrup and butter, link sausage and coffee, orange juice or milk. The price is $5 for adults or $20 for a family of up to six. Children under 6 may eat free in the company of an adult. Tickets may be purchased from any Kiwanis member or at the breakfast.
Kiwanis International is “devoted to serving the children of the world, one child and one community at a time.” All profits from the pancake breakfast go to the local club’s Community Service Fund. Most of the fund is used to support projects and organizations that help the children and youth of our area, including Key Clubs in local high schools. A small portion supports Kiwanis International’s push to eliminate neonatal tetanus, a major health problem in developing nations.
Generous support and donations from Elmer’s Restaurant, Meadow Gold Dairy, The Butcher Block, the city of Pocatello and many other organizations and individuals have made it possible for over 80 percent of ticket sales to go directly to community service.
Kiwanis member and Idaho State University Professor Steve Shropshire will again be setting up a demonstration of physical principles near the Breakfast. Hands-on building and launching of bottle rockets by young people is a popular part of the activity, with a competition for the longest flight. Participation is free.
Members of Pocatello Kiwanis Club urge you to support your community while enjoying a pleasant picnic breakfast in the park.
