When the sun comes up on Sunday February 5th, three teams will already be hard at work preparing for the big day. The Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots will get their chance later in the day, but the Clarence Lions will be serving up another beloved Sunday tradition from 8am-1pm right here at home in at the Clarence High School Cafeteria – their famous Pancake Breakfast.
Lion’s President Gerry Drinkard, along with Robert Sackett, Bill Westley, and a host of dedicated volunteers promise “the best pancakes you can find,” along with farm fresh Kreher’s eggs, sausage, fruit, juice and piping hot coffee.
If you’ve ever been to a Lion’s Pancake Breakfast before, you know this is a classic community event. If this will be your first one, you might be surprised at just how many people you will know. There’s also a very popular basket raffle held during the event, and Guiding Eyes for the Blind will be greeting attendees with service animals ready to show a bit of “puppy love.”
Tickets are $8 for adults, $4 for children 5-12 and free for those under 5 years old. Tickets are available from any Clarence Lion or by calling Gerry Drinkard at 472-7931. You can also buy at the door, though there’s still time to buy in advance if you wish to qualify for a door prize.
Proceeds of the event are used by the Clarence Lions to support community services, including Guiding Eyes for the Blind, Niagara Frontier Radio Reading Service, the Clarence Food Pantry and others.
