The annual Crawfordsville Lions Club pancake supper will be a drive-through event this Saturday night due to COVID-19 safety concerns.
Treasurer Randy Fink says they’re ready to serve about 250 people from 4-7 p.m. Saturday at the Crawfordsville Fire Station. He says free will donations will be accepted for a meal that includes pancakes, sausage patties and scrambled eggs. Fink says the proceeds will go toward a $500 scholarship for a graduating WACO High School student. He says some funds also go to the Lions Club International Foundation, “That money is in a fund that Lions International sends to areas that are hard hit by disasters like the derecho that went through Cedar Rapids. I know some of the money came back there for that.”
Fink says Lions Club also helps people with vision and hearing problems. He says they had to scrap their annual pancake breakfast last September due to the pandemic and while that meant they lost out on $1,200 to $1,400 in fundraising, their club is in decent shape financially.
