Served to 600 hungry patrons

Photos and story by Monty Siekerman
The Ada Kiwanis Club served about 600 meals on Saturday during the 66th annual Pancake/Sausage Day at the Ada Schools cafeteria during the breakfast and lunch hours.

This is a major fundraiser for the service club, which is known for helping youth.

Serving began at 7 a.m. and, yes, there were diners waiting at the door at that early hour on a Saturday morning.
