Did you know eating pancakes at the K-Day pancake breakfast helps support many local organizations and youth oriented programs in our community?
Each delicious bite you take will help the Kiwanis Club give two scholarships to deserving Clay County seniors, help support 4-H, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Northview Key Club, and North Clay Builders Club and is also major supporter of Riley Children's Hospital.
A large portion of the event's success comes from area students pre-selling tickets to the breakfast. The girl and boy at the middle school level selling the most tickets becomes the K-Day Princess and Prince while the highest girl and boy ticket sellers at the high school level become the K-Day Queen and King.
The coronation of the 2006 K-Day Royal Court took place Thursday evening at Northview High School. This year's royal court includes (front row) court member Courtney Neese, Queen Dakota Keller, Princess Shelby Bender, court member Natasha Bowles, (back row) court member Anthony Vanatti, King Chris Allee, Prince Larry Knight and court member Kasey Bowman.
