Breakfast with the Easter Bunny

Kiwanian Don Brasted and Key Clubbers Vaselea Cowin and Tommy Bodnar work the griddle at last year's pancake breakfast.

Bay Village Kiwanians and Bay High Key Clubbers will hold their annual spring pancake breakfast on Sunday, March 29, from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Bay Middle School, 27725 Wolf Road. This year, the Easter Bunny makes an appearance!

The all-you-can-eat breakfast includes pancakes, syrup, link sausages, milk, juice and coffee for $6 per person presale, and $7 at the door. Children under age 6 eat for free.

Advance tickets are available from your favorite Kiwanian, or by contacting Patrick Mosier at or

New this year, the Easter Bunny will be hopping into town to appear at the pancake breakfast (bring your own camera for photos with the Easter Bunny), and there will be Easter crafts and activities for children.

“The Kiwanis Club of Bay Village, along with the Bay High Key Club, team up for the annual spring pancake breakfast to welcome warm weather back to Bay. Come on out and enjoy a hot breakfast on a sunny spring morning, while supporting two hometown service organizations,” says Rhonda Schneider of the Kiwanis Club.

The meal is a community tradition, popular with students and families. Proceeds from the event benefit the Bay High School Scholarship Fund, as well as projects and organizations such as: Reese Park renovations, Village Food Project, BAYarts, Bay Historical Society, Lake Erie Nature & Science Center, Rachel’s Challenge at Bay Middle School and Bay High School, BMS fifth-grade Technology Club, BHS Pal Program, and “Kiwi Bags” for Cuyahoga County Children’s Services (a backpack given to children who are removed from their homes, which includes toiletries, socks, underwear, a blanket, coloring book and crayons).

Kiwanis volunteers have cooked and served pancakes for community causes in Bay Village for over half a century. The organization holds two pancake breakfasts a year to support community projects and scholarships. The next one will be in the fall during Homecoming Weekend.
