The Blissfield Kiwanis Club will host its annual pancake supper from 4:30-7 p.m. Thursday, April 18, in the Blissfield High School cafeteria.
The bevy of breakfast foods on the menu include pancakes, french toast, sausage, coffee, apple sauce and white and chocolate milk.
Proceeds from the fundraiser are used by the Kiwanis Club to fund several charities involving local children. These funds have been used for scholarships, as well as the annual dictionary donations made to third-graders in Blissfield and Deerfield elementary schools.
As of Monday evening, the outside westbound lane on U.S. 223 in Blissfield from Maple Street to just east of Monroe Street is closed. Michigan Department of Transportation is working in Blissfield to replace curbs on that side of the street that include the removal of driveaways from the former Smith property. Work is expected to last approximately three days, weather permitting.
