SIDNEY — The pancakes are back.

After a one year absence due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Kiwanis Club of Sidney Ohio will be holding its annual Pancake Day on Wednesday, April 21, 2021. Serving time is from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and will be held at the Shelby County Fairgrounds. This year’s event will be drive through only. No onsite meals will be served.
