They went like hotcakes......and they were!

Lions Pancake Breakfast raises $1,655 in sales
Thanks to $860 in ticket sales at the door last Sunday morning (3/13/16), the Belle Fourche Lions Club raised some $1,655 during its annual Pancake Breakfast at the Moose Lodge.

"The weather was really nice, and we didn't get the 'after church' crowd like we normally do," said event chairman Lion Ron Ensz, but it was still "about $100 better than we did last year."

The breakfast always attracts a pretty large group of hungry citizens, and it's a very important tool for the Lions Club.  After expenses for the event are paid, the net proceeds help Belle Fourche Lions in a wide range of community projects ranging from youth scholarships and eyeglasses for needy citizens to lending support to a "Christmas Family" and construction of numerous shelters for city parks.  

That's long-time "Advisor" and pancake chef Lion Bob Schnaible pictured above.  We've posted a few other pancake breakfast pictures in our Lions Gallery (with thanks to Lions Joyce Drabek and Ron Ensz for sharing photos).

Thanks to all the Lions who turned out to work at this important event!
