The annual all-you-can-eat Rotary Pancake Breakfast will be served Saturday morning in conjunction with the Eastern Illinois University Homecoming parade.

Charleston Rotary Club (Illinois, US — District 6490) members will be serving pancakes, sausages and drinks from 6.30 am to 10 am on Saturday in the parking lot at Dirty’s Bar and Grill at the corner of Lincoln Avenue and Seventh Street, where the parade begins.

Tickets are $6 for adults and $3 for children age 11 and younger.

Tickets may be purchased in advance from any Rotarian. Tickets also can be purchased at the breakfast.

Rotary has been serving the pancake breakfast near the start of EIU’s Homecoming parade for more than 15 years.

Pancake breakfast proceeds are used by the Charleston Rotary Club for projects like sponsoring youth sports teams, international exchange opportunities for students and adults, scholarships for CHS graduates, technology assistance for Charleston schools, Jefferson School leadership awards, school backpacks for needy students, youth leadership camp opportunities and more.

The Charleston Rotary Club meets at noon each Tuesday in the Rotary Community Room at the Charleston Public Library.
