On Saturday, March 10 the annual Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast was held at Olympic View Middle School.

The event was more than just a delicious pancake breakfast served up by members of the Kiwanis Club under the supervision of Tim Taylor.

Pam Taylor was also a big part of the planning and organization for the annual fund raising event.  The Kiwanis Club scholarship program awards scholarships to students in the Mukilteo School District.

Those who attended this year’s breakfast enjoyed a great variety of fun entertainment.

Annie Johnson, assistant superintendent of Mukilteo Schools, coordinated choral and band groups from elementary, middle school, and high school students in the Mukilteo schools.

The Kamiak Barbershop, Mariner Step Team and Avant Blues, Explorer Orchestra, Olympic View Jazz Band, and the Colibri Folklore Dancers all entertained at the breakfast.

A raffle of 30-plus baskets filled with desirable items and valuable contents were another fun part of the breakfast.

Coordinating the raffle were members Joan Hartman and Lynette Gardiner.

Many community leaders were there enjoying the activities along with their neighbors.

Key Club volunteers from both Kamiak and Mariner assisted Kiwanis members at the “big event.”

Kiwanis president, Paul Salas, said, ”We (club members) look forward to this event each year because it brings the community, kids and families together for an awesome breakfast and live entertainment to raise money for our scholarship fund.”

Last year, the Kiwanis Club of Mukilteo awarded a record $21,000 in scholarships to Kamiak, Mariner, ACES, and Sno-Isle Tech/Skills Center students.

The money raised at this year’s Pancake Breakfast will help the Kiwanis Foundation of Mukilteo provide scholarships and support to local youth in 2018.

Students can pick up applications at the Career Center offices of Kamiak and Mariner High Schools.

Applications are also available at ACES and Sno-Isle Tech Skills Center in the Career Counselors office.

If you missed this year’s breakfast, it will be held in March again next year. Be sure to look for the “Kiwanis big, yellow tent” at the Mukilteo Lighthouse Festival this September where they will be hosting The Kiwanis Salmon Bake.

#The Kiwanis Club of Mukilteo meets on Wednesday mornings at 7:30 am at the Harbor Pointe Golf Club (11817 Harbour Pointe Blvd).
