PANCAKES ALL DAY LONG / ELECTION DAY, Tuesday, Nov. 2, 7:00 am - 7:00 pm

The Ithaca Rotary Club's 37th Annual Rotary Pancake Day is November 2nd, 7am to 7pm Election Day.

Pancake Day is one of our great annual events that makes Ithaca such a fabulous place to live! Held at the Women's Community Building,located on the corner of Cayuga and Seneca Streets in Ithaca, Pancake Day has become an Ithaca tradition where we gather to eat, make new friends and see old ones, speculate on election turnouts, and generally have a good time!

Please come-- If you've never attended this event before I can assure you after the first time it will become part of your family's tradition, too! Call your spouse or a group of your friends, just decide when during the day you want to meet, and put it on your calendar. Pick up the kids-- don't let them miss out-- because they all eat free!

Blueberry pancakes and yogurt join this year's menu along with the traditional staples of pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, applesauce, fruit, coffee, tea, and orange juice. Cooked and served on site by Rotarians and Youth Exchange Students, your meal will be hot and delicious!

Tickets are $7 for adults ­ kids under age 12 eat free! Proceeds from this special event are used to fund our International Student Exchange Program, so please consider helping sustain this important opportunity to promote international understanding and good will.

My husband, David, and I usually meet there around 6:00 pm, if you're there at that time, too-- then I'll look forward to a quick wave or hello!
If you're not in town for this event, just think of us enjoying the good food and company! But wherever you may be this Election Day, be sure to get out and VOTE!

Oh, and if you have friends in Ithaca whom you think might appreciate a reminder of this event, please send this to them!
