SYKESVILLE – The newly reorganized Sykesville Civic Improvement Association, formerly the Lions Club of Sykesville, welcomes new members and plans fall fundraisers, including the annual Pancake Fry.
Those interested in joining the group are invited to attend one of the regular SCIA meetings, which take place the first and third Tuesday of the month at Sykesville Town Hall, at the corner of Park and Main streets in Sykesville. .
The SCIA, a voluntary organization committed to improving the borough of Sykesville and its surroundings, was formed by members of the former Lions Club of Sykesville in the spring. SCIA’s mission remains the same, however, members organize fundraisers to support local schools and organizations, donate to food banks and other charitable groups, and award annual scholarships.
The SCIA was formed in response to members’ desire to keep more money in the local community, rather than being submitted in Lions Club dues, said SCIA President Sam Armagost.
SCIA continues to own and operate Sykesville Town Hall as a gathering space for the community.
This year’s Pancake Fry will be at Sykesville Town Hall on Saturday, November 27, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday, November 28, from 8 a.m. until full. The fundraiser will feature all-you-can-eat buckwheat and regular pancakes, sausage, scrambled eggs, hash browns and French toast sticks. The cost is $ 7, or free for ages 5 and under.
For more information on the work of SCIA or to join the group, contact Armagost at 814-541-1972 or SCIA Secretary Debbie Bowers at 814-427-2199.
