There was a lot of hop-hoping and pancake flipping going on at the Alliston Lions Club this past Sunday morning.
The Lions held their annual Easter Pancake Breakfast, and no less than 250 came out to take part in a fun morning of colouring, raffles, a meet and greet with the Easter Bunny, and of course pancakes and sausages.
Proceeds from the by-donation event will go towards community outreach programs facilitated by the Lions Club throughout the year.
The Lions Club puts on several community events throughout the year, but this breakfast as gained popularity over the years.
“The Pancake Breakfast with the Easter Bunny was a success last year so we decided to do this fun event for the kids again,” confirms Lions representative, Allison Stumpo. “As Lions, we enjoy seeing the kids enjoying themselves and having the community come out and have fun.”
The next big event planned by the Lions Club is the Boyne River Classic Duck Race. The event is set to take place on June 4 at the Riverdale Park bandshell area.
Tickets are $10 each available at Home Show in Alliston and from Lions members.
“We will also be selling around town at various stores soon,” said Stumpo.
On May 7, the Lions will take part in Day of Service, hosting another pancake breakfast and road clean-up. The event is intended to be “a good time with fellow Lions, and good for the environment.”
On June 18 the Alliston Lions will host cyclists involved in Cycle for Sight at the Alliston Potato Festival grounds. The stop is the half-way point for cyclists participating in the charity ride. These riders began their journey in Toronto, and will finish their day at Blue Mountain, in Collingwood.
