Once again it is time for the Kirkland Kiwanis Club Pancake Breakfast benefiting KITH! This community event will be held on May 25, at the Peter Kirk Community Center, located at 352 Kirkland Avenue in downtown Kirkland from 7:00 a.m. until Noon. The suggested donation is $7.00 per person, although nobody will be turned away.
