LIMA — The 60th annual Lima Sertoma Pancake Day is Saturday at Lima Senior.

“We consider ourselves the ‘original’ pancake day,” said Jason Stolly, president of Lima Sertoma Club. “There’s a lot of them now.”

The Sertoma Club expects between 3,500 to 4,000 people at the pancake day.

“This is our biggest fundraiser. Our main mission is speech and hearing, that’s kind of our focus, but we do lots of other things that we try to find projects and things locally in the area that we can support. We do some stuff with Faurot Park with our Sertoma Shelter House. We have a scholarship for people going into speech therapy; we have a summer speech program for kids that can’t afford speech over the summer; we do a hearing aid program where we provide hearing aids for people that can’t afford them; we get requests for lots of stuff that are local and we support those depending on what they are,” said Stolly.

Guests will dine on blueberry pancakes or regular pancakes from Bob Evans; specialty sausage from Keystone Meats; Biggby Coffee; and juice and milk provided by Jerry Lewis’ McDonald’s. The butter and creamer is provided by Prairie Farms.

With so many guests, there is a need for volunteers, and the Sertoma Club is happy to accept volunteers.

“We get help from the Lima Young Professionals, the Shawnee Band and this year we actually have a sorority out of Ohio Northern University and they have the same or similar mission as us with speech and hearing, so they are going to bring sorority girls to help out. So I’m guessing the number of volunteers will be probably around 75 or so. The Sertoma organization will have close to 40 or more at this event,” said Stolly.

Anna and Elsa from “Frozen” will be on hand at some point throughout the day, as well.
