The Scholastic Book Fair hours are 7:00 AM to 12:30 PM Saturday February 24and Sunday, February 25.
Proceeds from the Bloomington Kiwanis Pancake Days and Scholastic Book Fair go toward the club’s signature project of sending local deserving children to Camp Limberlost, as well as other programs benefitting local kids such as Aktion Club, Boys and Girls Club, WD Boyce Boy Scouts of America, Salvation Army and Children’s Miracle Network. Each summer, since 1930, Bloomington Kiwanis has sent approximately a hundred 8-10 year olds who have been identified as children who would benefit from a camping experience, to Camp Limberlost at East Bay Camp at Lake Bloomington. Camp Limberlost, and the other programs benefitting local kids, is supported by fundraisers throughout the year including Pancake Days, Mother’s Day Flower Sale, cheese sales, and individual and business/corporate donations.
