Annual pancake breakfast Saturday

The Pilot Club of Andalusia’s Annual Pancake and Sausage Breakfast is right around the corner, and this year, Organizer Melissa King said they are hoping to feed 1,000 people.

“We had a great year last year,” King said. “We got pretty close to 1,000, so we are hoping to reach that this year.”

King said that they can use volunteers to help with the event.

“We have 30 already signed up,” King said. “But we need more to help out with the event.”

The event will be held at the Kiwanis Community Center, Dec. 1, from 5:30 a.m., until noon.

King said that the best part of the event is the fellowship.

“It’s not like you are coming to a restaurant,” King said. “We aren’t going to kick you out, so you can just come and talk with people until noon. There have been people coming for years that just hang around after they finish eating.”

Cost is $7 for an all-you-can-eat breakfast and tickets are available at the door.

The Pilot Club of Andalusia is a community-based volunteer service organization based on the principals of friendship and service.

The main charity to which the club contributes is a partnership with the Covington County Sheriff’s Department for Project Lifesaver.

Project Lifesaver provides free, personalized wristbands with radio transmitters to individuals who are considered at risk for wandering.

Additionally, the Pilot Club of Andalusia supplies helmets for the children who receive bicycles at the annual Andalusia Community Christmas in an effort to prevent brain injuries.
