In 2015, total served were 26,535 --  7,645 on Monday, 10,871 on Wednesday, and 8,019 On Friday. 

 

For the historical record of people served, see the late Floyd Foresman's tally below, updated for 2015.

Floyd gathered Cheyenne Kiwanis Club Pancake Breakfast Committee records from 1966, two years before the Kiwanis Club was assigned primary responsibility for production of the event, through 2014.

 

 
 
 
Kiwanis International President John Button and his wife Debbie have been guests of the Cheyenne Kiwanis Club the past couple days.  They jumped right into the festivities, including helping out at all the work stations during the Wednesday morning Pancake Breakfast. Club President Tim presented them with their official Pancake Breakfast shirts and cowboy hats at the Tuesday night informal member dinner held at the Treber Building, then accompanied them to the Kiwanis special presentation of the Atlas Theater Melodrama. Wednesday morning saw them at the Pancake Breakfast, then later in the day at the Thunderbirds air show and the CFD rodeo performance. Wednesday evening, they and Club members were hosted by Kim and Brian Lovett for an informal dinner. Thursday morning, the Buttons got to ride in the CFD parade with Cheyenne Mayor Rick Kaysen. They then attended the traditional Cheyenne Kiwanis CFD Interclub luncheon.

The 51st annual Kiwanis FFA Livestock Sale is set for Friday night, August 7, 2015, at the end of the Laramie County Fair.  (See the Download section on this home page for a brief history of the sale and the benefits provided to the FFA members who have participated in the past.)
All Club members can participate in the sale, even if they do not plan to attend, by signing up for shares in the Kiwanis Investment Group. The KIG provides a floor for the sale; if bidding is slow on an animal, the KIG will join the bidding in an attempt to get a better price for the FFA member's animal. Shares are guaranteed not to exceed $15 each, and are usually less; if no animals are bought, you owe nothing. The cost of shares will be billed on the monthly club statement. Your support of this project is much appreciated. Contact Kevin Burkett or Bryce Freeman if you have any questions or want to help work on the sale.
 

 
 
Please plan now to help out during a very busy Summer of Club projects. Your Board has approved these projects, with dates as indicated. Remember, Kiwanis is not just something you join, it is something you DO! (And the project chairs would really appreciate your help.) See the on-line calendar for more detail about each project and volunteer now to help out.
