In order to seat all of the people who attended, long rows of tables were set up in the garage of the fire station. Customers were served pancakes, sausage patties, fruits, and assorted drinks. Members of South Pasadena High School’s Key Club also attended the event, and contributed to the fun by passing out balloons to children.

Tickets were $7 per person, except for children under the age of 6, who got in for free. All proceeds went to the Kiwanis Scholarship Club, which provides financial support to distinguished graduating seniors each year.


Not only did the Pancake Breakfast supply the public with food, it also provided a chance to make new friends. People from all over town came to the event, and met fellow residents whom they hadn’t known before.
