The Kiwanis Club of Aiken invites couples and singles alike to a pancake breakfast Valentine's Day morning.
Held at Aiken's First Presbyterian Church downtown, the breakfast will start at 7 a.m. and last until 11 a.m.
"Kiwanis International is known for its pancake breakfasts," said Aiken member Cheryl Fogle.
"We've gotten good feedback so far."
Kiwanis is also known for its youth-focused programs, and the Aiken club is no different.
The pancake breakfast Saturday will serve as a fund-raiser for the club's various community service projects and its sponsorships of youth clubs like Builders Club in local middle schools, Key Club in high schools and the Circle K Club at USC Aiken.
Funds will also help the Kiwanis Club of Aiken participate in a volunteer action day in April called One Day, where its members and members of the school youth clubs will take part in a beautification project at Boyd Pond Park.
"We think we can serve the community best by helping them (youth) with opportunities they may not normally have," Fogle said.
Breakfast attendees will be served pancakes and have a choice of bacon or sausage and coffee or juice.
Tickets are $7 or two for $12 and will be available at the door or in advance by calling Fogle at 641-3612.
First Presbyterian Church is located at 224 Barnwell Ave. N.W.
