Kiwanis and Hermes partner for pancake breakfast and race

Key Club members serving coffee and juice at last year's pancake breakfast.

The Westlake Kiwanis will hold their spring pancake breakfast on Sunday, April 15. The breakfast will take place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Westlake High School cafeteria, 27830 Hilliard Blvd. The breakfast is being held in conjunction with the Hermes Westlake Spring Fever run to benefit LakeShore Day Camp, Westlake Kiwanis and Westlake PTA.

Breakfast includes all the pancakes you can eat! Plus sausage, orange juice, milk, coffee and tea. Tickets are $6. Children 6 and under eat for free.

This year, as a "Kiwanis Young Children Priority One" project, the Westlake Kiwanis will donate a substantial portion of the proceeds from the breakfast to Westlake Porter Public Library to purchase "manipulatives" (toys for teaching math skills) for the children's section of the library and the remaining funds will go toward other projects benefiting children throughout the Westlake community such as holiday food baskets for the disadvantaged, student scholarships, the Westlake High School Key Club, Builders Club and Aktion Club.

The Westlake Spring Fever is a 2-mile or 4-mile run kicking off at 9 a.m. from Westlake High. Race registration is $25 in advance. Discounted tickets for the pancake breakfast of $5 are available to race registrants. To sign up, visit
