WALTERS, OK (KSWO) - To celebrate National Pancake Day hundreds of Walters residents ate pancakes at the annual pancake dinner provided by the Walters Chamber of Commerce. About 350 people attended the event at Walters school cafeteria. 

The proceeds from Tuesday’s event goes to the Chamber of Commerce's community chest.
The money is spread throughout the community to local groups in need. 

In the past, the money has gone to getting local Girl Scouts vests and assisting with youth league sports fees.

"In a small town like this it's very important...we don't have a park and recreation department or anything. We don't have any source of funding for that for the kids and it just works out real good," Chamber member John Sheppard said.

During the event, they went through more than 50 pounds of pancake batter.

If you didn't have a chance to make it out and you'd like to donate to the community chest you can do so by contacting one Walters Chamber of Commerce.

    We had a great turnout at Texoma Idol this weekend. Kourtney Smith ended up taking home the title. She was named the first ever Texoma Idol received a trophy and a silver ticket to guarantee her an audition with an American Idol producer. Smith was one of about 50 people who showed up to audition. We had phenomenal judges: Jeri Anderson, Lauren Nelson, and Greg Hoffner. They had quite the job because there were some amazing singers that auditioned.
