Chiang Mai International Rotary Club's (CMIRC) fundraiser event “Rotary Pancake Breakfast” was planned to be held on Saturday, 9th of January 2021 at the River Market Restaurant from 8:30 am – 11:00 am. but has been postponed.  Here are some fun facts about Rotary pancake breakfasts -- a long tradition in North American Rotary clubs.
 
In researching the traditional Rotary Pancake Breakfast, some of the interesting items appear in over eighteen pages of results:
 
Batavia Rotary Club's Annual Fly-in Breakfast:  The first Skaneateles (New York) Rotary Club (SRC) pancake breakfast was held in 1968 under the presidency of Jim Messenger, who at that time was the manager of the Skaneateles Airport.  The breakfast, held in the hanger, featured a fly-in and in addition to the local crowd some 80 to 100 planes from around the East.
 
Rotary Club of Murfreesboro (Tennessee) had their 18th Annual Hotcakes and Holly fundraising breakfast virtually on Saturday, December 12th from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m., with sponsorship levels up to U.S.$3000.
 
With adjustments for COVID-19, The Cooperstown (New York) Rotary Club’s traditional Election Day pancake breakfast will proceed 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, as it has for more than a half-century.
 
The Massena (NY) Rotary Pancake Day has been scheduled for Nov. 7, but there will be a twist — it will be a drive-thru event from 7 a.m. to noon at First United Methodist Church, 189 Main St.
 
On December 5th we celebrated the Miamisburg (Ohio) Rotary Club’s Community Support Day. This was the replacement fundraiser for what would have been our 60th Annual Miamisburg Rotary Club’s Pancake Day breakfast.
