CLYDE — Clyde Central United Methodist Church will host its annual Ben Eidam Memorial Pancake Day from 7 to 11 a.m. Saturday, March 11, in the fellowship hall at 410 Charles St. There will be pancakes, bacon, sausage and drinks. There will also a bake sale, with proceeds going to cystic fibrosis research.

The day is named for the late Ben Eidam, a local pharmacy owner and community volunteer, who was an active member of the church and men’s group.  His leadership and service inspired others and his legacy continues to be remembered.

“Our annual Ben Eidam Memorial Pancake Day benefits the local community,” said Ken Stines, president of the United Methodist Men, the project sponsor. “We normally have a good response, which we certainly appreciate.

“We’re counting on people to enjoy a hearty and delicious meal and fellowship while helping those with serious problem.”

In the past, assistance has been provided to young families with catastrophic illnesses, home repairs, ramps, local school needs and other critical local needs.

Tickets costs $8 for adults and $5 for children ages 6-12. Children under 6 eat for free. Tickets are available in advance or may be purchased at the door. Carry out meals will be available.

Joey’s Pancake House and Julia Eidam have provided assistance through the years, as well as Ingles of Waynesivlle.
