The Rotary Club of Mocksville invites the community to a pancake breakfast on Saturday, Feb. 25 from 7-10 a.m. at First Baptist Church on North Main Street in Mocksville.

Boy Scout Troop 575 is a partnering with the club.

“The club recognizes the vital importance of quality of life and investing in youth development,” said Ken Gamble, club president. “This is why the club has made a multi-year commitment to sponsor Cognition and Davie Community Park with a total of $50,000 over five years split between the two organizations.

“The COVID-19 pandemic put a huge damper on fundraising for almost two years, but the club is excited about being back in the community doing service projects and raising money for great organizations like Cognition and Davie Community Park,” Gamble said.

He invites all to come out to share food and fun while supporting organizations that make Davie County a wonderful place to live.

“We are asking for a donation at the door for the meal and know we can count on the generosity of the community,” said Gamble.

The club is always on the lookout for new members and Gamble extends a personal invitation to attend the weekly meetings to find out more about the club. The club meets the first and fourth Thursdays of the month at Restaurant 101 at noon and the second Thursday of each month at 801 Southern Kitchen and Pancake House in Advance at 7 a.m.

The club reserves the third week of every month for doing service projects in the community.

“Rotary is all about ‘Service above Self’, because when we serve others we make the greatest impacts for ourselves, our family and our community,” he said.
