HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - There’s going to be a whole new look to the annual Hastings Kiwanis Club Pancake Feed this year, but the “secret recipe” for the pancakes remains the same.

The pancake feed will be Saturday and Sunday at the Hastings airport in conjunction with the Nebraska State Fly-in and Airplane Show. Breakfast will be served in the brick hanger at the airport from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. both days.

“It’s a challenge and we’ve had to improvise a lot of things because the hanger didn’t have the facilities,” said Jim Lewis of the Hastings Kiwanis Club. “But, we’ve got it all worked out.”

Hosting a pancake feed is a 68-year tradition for the Kiwanis Club. They use the proceeds to benefit their youth projects.

“We issue dictionaries to every third grader in Hastings schools and the surrounding community schools,” said Lewis. “We use it for putting on a bowling tournament for children at New Year’s Eve. And we use it for scholarships and camps.”

Lewis says they have served over two-thousand people in past years, and they are thinking they will top that over the course of the two days.
