Last year they brought back the ever-popular blueberry pancakes, but this year the Rotary Club plans to get really fancy, offering patriotic red, white and blue pancakes at the 43rd annual Santa Clarita Valley Rotary Club pancake breakfast.

"We wanted to have a more patriotic theme, so we're going to have strawberries, blueberries and a dollop of whipped cream," said Rotary Club member Connie Ragen Green.

The Rotary pancake breakfast begins at 7 a.m. today and runs until 10:30 a.m. in the Roger Dunn Golf parking lot on Main Street (formerly San Fernando Road) between 5th and 6th streets. Guests can enjoy pancakes, sausage, orange juice and coffee for just $4.

Proceeds will go to the Rotary Foundation, which helps out nonprofit groups in the Santa Clarita Valley. A 50/50 raffle, which has been going on for about a month, will conclude at the event, with tickets available for $10.

Rotarians and their families prepare everything for the July Fourth feast. Jackie Esbin, 15, will once again be helping out her dad, Rotarian Lou Esbin, on the pancake grill.

"Jackie does such an excellent job helping us out," Green said. "It's not so easy to make pancakes on those big grills."

There will also be live musical entertainment during the breakfast.

The Santa Clarita Valley Rotary Club was founded in 1960 with the motto "Rotary is Service above Self."
Each year, the Rotary Foundation provides financial support to a number of local charities.

Rotary is a humanitarian service organization focused on fulfilling community needs at both the local and international levels. Programs encompass a wide variety of local concerns as well as international issues such as hunger, health and education.
