Residents interested in a good meal for a good cause are in luck.
The annual Ruston Kiwanis Club Pancake Day fundraiser is set for Nov. 8 at the Ruston Civic Center.
Tickets for the “all you can eat” pancake meal with sausage and bacon are $7. They can be purchased from any Kiwanis Club member or at the door. Pancakes will be served from 6:30–9 a.m. and 4:30–7 p.m.
This event is the Ruston Kiwanis Club’s only fundraiser of the year, and all proceeds are used to support various programs in the Ruston area.
First Baptist Church of Ruston will serve its traditional Thanksgiving meal “To Ruston with Love” to area citizens at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Ruston Civic Center, located at 401 N. Trenton Street.
For the past 21 years, FBC has hosted this community-wide, free feast. Initially, this annual event began with the idea of feeding a few Louisiana Tech University students who remained on campus during the Thanksgiving holidays, and through the years has increased to not only include students, but also to include Ruston area residents.
