June 17th will be the annual Outback Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast 7am-10am. Club members will be asked to help sell our $10 tickets…prizes for the top 3 sellers  All proceeds raised go to our club, Outback absorbs all costs and labor. We only need a small group to set up event signage, ticket sales/collection at door, a bit of bussing tables and breakdown of signage. We raised roughly $3,000-4,000 last year for just a little bit of effort on our part;)
