Pancake Day has long been a tradition in Logan County and it is the Kiwanis Club's primary fundraising effort for their charitable giving such as scholarships and assistance with local Little League and other efforts for children.
The event will also feature a silent auction with fantastic items donated from area businesses up for grabs to the highest bidder. To make a bid in the silent auction, just write down the amount you wish to bid on the sheet with the item's number. Kiwanis Club members have been scouring the region in the past few weeks to come up with items for the auction.
"So far, Thornhills, Saxs, B&B Loans, Uncle Sams, and Dr. Woods, the eye doctor in Chapmanville, have made some great donations, and those are just the ones I have," said Roger Ramey.
"Bob Barker donated a WVU quilt and a throw with Logan scenery on it," said Don Elkins, adding many local businesses have been very supportive of the silent auction including McGrew Tire, McCormick's, Dan and Daves, Cottage Flower Shop, Heavenly Host and many others.
"We have guitars, amps, a hammock, rod and reels, an angel, hats, a tackle box, a pocket watch, clothing, including a Dale Jr. Jacket, and a Terry Labonte jacket, a duffle bag, standees of NASCAR celebrities, a cooler and other items and quite a few certificates for goods and services. There is something for everyone thanks to our donors and sponsors," Elkins said.
Tickets for Pancake Day are available from any Kiwanis member or from Don Elkins Music Shop on Main Street in Logan. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for kids.

The Kiwanis Club is gearing up for an active spring and summer with Pancake Day being followed by the upcoming Kiwanis Kids Bicycle Safety Rodeo on April 25 at the Fountain Place Plaza. The Logan Fire Department, PIECES, the West Logan Police Department and the Hatfield-McCoy Regional Recreation Authority have all agreed to provide gifts or services for the kids as part of the event.
