Popular pancakes! West Seattle Kiwanis Club’s big breakfast

It’s a gorgeous morning – blue sky, not THAT cold – no reason not to head for the Alki Masonic Hall (40th/Edmunds, a block east of Jefferson Square) to enjoy pancakes cooked up by the Kiwanis Club of West Seattle. The pancakes are flying off the griddle – batter up!

And more big fun is still to come – Santa Claus will be here soon, we’re told, and at 9 am, West Seattle Hi-Yu royalty will be on stage. Right next to the stage, a stack of unwrapped toys is growing:

Yes, the Marines have landed, since Toys for Tots is their operation. You’ve got other chances to do a good deed here too – note the sign in the background; Pathfinder K-8 is selling their famous handmade wreaths, local Scouts (who are helping serve, as usual) are selling T-shirts, and there’s a raffle. It’s all continuing till 11 am, and even out here in the parking lot, where we’re online to publish the story, it smells great. Breakfast is $6/adults, $3/kids (who get free Santa photos). ADDED 3:41 PM: We went back to check in on Santa and friends later in the morning:

We can also report that midway through the event, the hall was packed with pancake fans!

    Lots of folks, tons of fun, great gifts, and lots of “little ones” and grownup folks too, telling Santa what they want. Great photos. Love seeing all the high school kids who help, the handsome boy scouts! and the Marines! Pancakes and ham were delicious. Thank you Kiwanis!!!

    Attending the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast is one of my favorite events in the Junction. It was wonderful having Boy Scout Troop 284 and the Key Clubs of West Seattle, Seattle Lutheran, and Sealth there to help wait tables and serve. The Kiwanis had a wide variety of vendors there too. The community also helped WS Hi-Yu by purchasing pins from the Hi-Yu royalty. Way to go Kiwanis Club!!! for great pancakes and ham, and for organizing this wonderful event at the beginning of the Holiday Season.
