Another successful Pancake Breakfast!

The weather cooperated, and a nice crowd of some 350 people found their way to the Moose Lodge in Belle Fourche on Sunday (3/25/12) for the Lion's annual Pancake Breakfast.

When the pancake batter settled, ticket sales and donations amounted to nearly $2,000, which will -- after paying expenses for the event -- go a long way to support the various community service activities performed by Lions.

Lion Swede Wennberg was quoted in the Belle Fourche Post that it was "...a gangbuster day!"  He said Lions workers had to go "three or four times" to get more sausage.

A nice bonus came with the presentation of a $266 donation from Lynn's Dakotamart, which had conducted its own fundraiser on behalf of Lions. 

Lynn's local Manager Jim Grapentine (on the right in this photo) presented a check to Lions Treasurer Rich Drabek.  Many thanks to Jim Grapentine and the many good folks at Lynn's Dakotamart for their staunch support!

Lion Bill Kunerth was kind enough to slip behind a camera and capture a few candid photographs from this event.  You'll find them in our Pancake Gallery!
