Pancake Day coming up

As the leaves begin to change, more and more area residents think about the northwest Georgia tradition of pancakes and sausage under the big tent at the recently enlarged Dalton Green in downtown Dalton.

Members of the Kiwanis Club of Dalton will serve the traditional fundraising Pancake Day breakfast on Saturday, Nov. 3, from 6 a.m. to noon.

The goal of Kiwanis is “serving the children of the world, one community and one child at a time.” All Pancake Day profits benefit local Whitfield and Murray County children’s charities. That includes Key Clubs in local high schools, Boys and Girls Club, Whitfield County-Dalton Day Care Center, Friendship House, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Junior Achievement, Family Crisis Center, The GreenHouse, Cherokee Estate and many more.

Tickets prices are the same as the last couple of years. The civic club is hoping to have even more people buy tickets and help local charities. They are $6 in advance and $7 the day of the event. Each ticket is good for all of the pancakes and sausage an adult or two children ages 12 and younger can eat. A ticket also includes coffee, orange juice and milk. Or, each ticket is good for one take-out order.

In addition to individual Kiwanians, tickets are now available at Alliance National Bank on West Morris Street; Certus Bank on Dug Gap Road; the Cohutta Banking Co. branch on North Thornton Avenue; Dart Drugs and Surgical at the corner of Thornton Avenue and Memorial Drive near the hospital; and Georgia Federal Credit Union just off Glenwood Avenue.

Tickets are also available at Minor, Bell and Neal on College Drive; The Morehouse Group on Thornton Avenue; Professional Pharmacy at the corner of Burleyson and Broadrick; Raspberry Row on West Cuyler Street next door to the Oakwood; Sweet Cheeks Denim on North Hamilton; Toys In the Attic on North Hamilton; and Todd Love Allstate Insurance on West Walnut Avenue.

  • Civil War anniversary: The Battle of Crow Valley, May 9-12, 1864

    The Atlanta Campaign began during the first two weeks of May 1864 in and around Dalton. Union Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman’s strategy was to target two of his armies, about 80,000 men, against Confederate Gen. Joseph E. Johnston’s Army of Tennessee at Dalton. Then, while Johnston’s attention was diverted by these forces, he would secretly send his third army, about 25,000 troops under Maj. Gen. James B. McPherson, in a flanking movement to the southwest through Snake Creek Gap. Sherman’s goal was to break Johnston’s railroad supply line some 15 miles south at Resaca and trap Johnston’s Confederates in Dalton.
