For three-quarters of a century, the Hannibal Evening Kiwanis has been an active part of the community, and shows no signs of slowing down.

The Evening Kiwanis recently celebrated its 75th birthday, with some 28 past chapter presidents on hand, coming from as far away as Mississippi.

But, as always, the Kiwanis is looking ahead.

Saturday, April 19 is the Kiwanis annual Pancake Day. It runs from 7 a.m. till noon in the Hannibal High School Cafeteria. It features all you can eat pancakes and sausage for $6, with all the proceeds going to community service projects.

Then, on Friday, April 25, the Kiwanis-sponsored Aktion Club hosts its annual spaghetti supper fundraiser. Serving is from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the Shirley Bomar Community Center.

And, the Kiwanis have begun selling tickets for its annual "Cash-Car-Mule" raffle. Tickets are $20 each, and the winner gets their choice of a Chevrolet Cruze, a Kawasaki Mule or $15,000 cash. The winning ticket will be drawn July 6 at the end of National Tom Sawyer Days.
