Waynesboro Lions to host pancake breakfast

February 08, 2007

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Waynesboro Lions Club will host its annual all-you-can-eat Pancake and Sausage Breakfast fundraiser in the Waynesboro High School cafeteria on Saturday, Feb. 17 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Lions hold this annual event as a fundraiser for the club's ongoing community service projects, including providing low-cost eye exams and eye glasses for the needy, especially children.

In the past, the Waynesboro Lions Club has used breakfast proceeds to support the Waynesboro Lunch Place and to sponsor "Student of the Month" awards for students at the Waynesboro Area Middle School.

This year, $500 from the breakfast will be earmarked for the Lions Club International Foundation's Campaign Sight First II project, a worldwide Lions initiative to end blindness in third-world countries.


For the third year in a row, the Lions are coordinating the morning's activities with the Greater Waynesboro Chamber of Commerce's Business Expo.

The expo will be in the high school gymnasium from 7:30 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. and it offers free admission. The public will be able to fill their bags with information and handouts from a wide array of local businesses and register to win a television.

Additionally, those with a sweet tooth can also visit the Waynesboro Lioness Club's bake sale. Proceeds from the bake sale will be used to support Lioness community service projects throughout the 2006-07 Lioness year.

Lions President Jim Eles is looking forward to a successful event.

"Each year our breakfast grows in size and popularity. Without the support of our community the Waynesboro Lions would not be able to provide the types of services that we do. I'm looking forward to continuing this relationship well into the future."

Tickets for the breakfast cost $5 for adults and $2.50 for children ages 5 to 12. They area available from any member of the Waynesboro Lions Club or are available at the Waynesboro YMCA, Waynesboro Optical, Edward Jones Investments, the Greater Waynesboro Chamber of Commerce or at the door.
