Ok, today, Tuesday, February 21, is National Pancake Day in most places, but around here, we have our own version, and this year it takes place on Saturday, March 4.
That's when you are all invited to enjoy and delicious breakfast for a great cause, and for sure one of my favorite charity days of the year, the 65th Annual Pancake Day hosted by the Kiwanis Club of Texarkana.
This yearly event benefits a bunch of local Texarkana charitable organizations. The Kiwanis Pancake Day event is an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast. The breakfast includes pancakes, sausage, bacon, coffee, juice, and milk, plus it's all-you-can-eat, so enjoy until you're full.
This is the primary fundraiser for your Texarkana Kiwanis to fund scholarships for local kids and individuals with special needs.
Pancake Day events also include a Bake Sale, a pancake eating contest, and a kid's area with plenty to keep them entertained while you chow down.
Just $5 per person.
The 65th annual Pancake Day begins at 7 AM and goes until 1 PM for you late sleepers. Texarkana College is once again the venue for the event at the Truman Arnold Center.
There's still room for your business to get involved as a sponsor as well, contact the Kiwanis Club of Texarkana to find out how.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving
To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
LOOK: The states with the most UFO sightings
For each state, we’ve also included details of famous UFO sightings in that state.
