The 55th annual Springville Lions Club All You Can Eat Pancake and Sausage Breakfast will be held on Sunday, Feb. 18 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Springville Volunteer Fire Department on West Main Street in Springville. The cost for adults is $9 and children ages 5 and under are free.
“In the past, the Boy Scouts have helped us with this event so we plan on making a donation to the club with a portion of the proceeds of this breakfast,” said Jim Miller, vice president of the Lions Club. “Additional money raised will go into the general fund, which helps support different projects through the year such as 80-90 meals for the community on Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas and, in the past, eye cameras for children in the schools.”
The club is looking forward to serving about 350 to 400 people this coming weekend at the breakfast.
Other fundraisers include their Chicken BBQ during election years held at St. Aloysius hall and providing the food at the annual Lamb and Webster Auction in the fall.
The Lions Club serves the needs of the local community by volunteering for various projects including fighting blindness by conducting vision screenings and raising awareness of eye disease, feeding the hungry, aiding seniors and the disabled and supporting children and schools.
Anyone interested in learning more can attend a Lions Club meeting, held on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Papa Jake’s Saloon, 243 West Main St. in Springville.
