The Kiwanis club raises scholarship money through a Fourth of July pancake breakfast every year at the Corbett Fun Fest.

Pancakes, eggs and sausage will be served from 7-10 a.m. Friday, July 4, at the Corbett High School Multipurpose Building.

Cost is $6 for adults and $3 for children ages 10 and younger. Children under age 5 eat for free.

Parking will be provided free of charge until the end of the breakfast, and then parking fees will apply for the Corbett Fun Fest event festivities.
