The 56th Annual Pancake Day will be held from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Feb. 28 at First United Methodist Church in Waynesville.
The cost is $7 for adults and $3 for children under 12.
“This has been a tradition in our church for over 50 years, and we think that it is the largest non-sporting event held in Haywood County,” said Sandy Giles, senior pastor. Last year, it is estimated that more than 2,500 individuals were served during the day, and more than 475 volunteers donate their time to make the event happen each year.
A portion of the funds raised this year will be used to establish a scholarship fund to honor Mary Ann and Charlie Way’s 50-plus years of service. This spring, the couple will award the first scholarship to a student who has financial need and has shown a commitment to service at the church and in the community.
Tickets can be purchased at the door, at the church office or from any member of the church.
