Pancake Day just keeps getting batter.

Pancake Day just keeps getting batter.

The 11th annual one will be held March 3 at Worthington Kilbourne High School, and organizers are looking to top last year's record attendance of nearly 4,000.

Hours are 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., with celebrity pancake flippers, entertainment, a sports equipment swap, and silent auction to take place throughout the day.

The menu will be about the same as in previous years: pancakes, sausage, orange juice, coffee. This year, Snowville Creamery will supply milk and cream.

Athletes from both high schools will square off in a pancake-eating contest.

Celebrities expected to flip cakes include Superintendent of Schools Thomas Tucker, sportscaster Dave Maetzold, and coaches from both high schools.

The sports swap will return for a second year. Everyone is invited to donate used sporting goods that will be sold by the sports booster organizations. Everything brought in last year was gone by the end of the day.

Another popular attraction that will return is the Drive One 4 UR School, sponsored this year by Germain Ford on Sawmill Road.

New Fords will be on site. Each short test drive earns the schools $20, up to a maximum of $6,000.

A sales pitch is not included, Baumgardner said.

Other popular attractions include auction packages donated by local merchants and inflatable games for youngsters.

Proceeds support Cards Inc. and Wolves Inc., the athletic booster organizations from Thomas Worthington and Worthington Kilbourne high schools.

Some funds support capital programs. The rest is distributed to each team at each school.

Parents, coaches, and teammates from both schools working side-by-side is what makes Pancake Day so successful, Baumgardner said.
