CG Lions serve up pancakes

Published 12:40am Sunday, April 20, 2014

COAL GROVE — The Coal Grove Lions Club Pancake Breakfast on Saturday was such a well-attended event even the Easter Bunny couldn’t stay away.

Parents took pictures of their children sitting in the Easter Bunny’s lap as Lions Club members cooked and served pancakes from 7 a.m.-noon on Saturday at Dawson-Bryant High School. A $5 ticket paid for unlimited pancakes, sausage and drinks.

“It’s unbelievable how the community supports us,” Tom Carey, Lions Club member, said. “One of the things that brings so many people out to this event is they know 100 percent of the money made today goes back to the community.”

The event aids the group’s effort in helping local children see better with all proceeds used to buy eyeglasses for children in need and provide scholarships for area high school students.

The club has sponsored the breakfast for at least 50 years. The event’s official name is the Harold Haney Annual Pancake Day named for Haney because he was one of the club’s founders and an avid supporter of Pancake Day.

Many people help make the event possible including club members and Boy Scout Troop 103.

“We have more than 40 volunteers here working today,” Carey said. “Everybody shows up and does their job. It’s amazing.”
