Lions prepare to flip some flapjacks
Circle the wagons and round up your kids — it's time for the Mt. Hood Lions Club's annual Chuckwagon Breakfast.
From 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, July 6, and Sunday, July 7, everyone is invited to the 61st Lions Club fundraiser at the clubhouse on Highway 26 and Woodsey Way in Welches.
It's intended to be a fun day of fundraising and flapjacks around the Fourth of July. The menu will include pancakes, eggs to order, bacon, sausage, coffee and juice.
A turkey shoot will also be included, as well as a raffle. Raffle tickets are $1 each or $5 for six and available at the door.
"This is one of our largest fundraisers of the year," said member Milt Fox.
All proceeds from the event help fund the club's efforts to provide health services to the community and community betterment. Throughout the year, the club hosts health fairs and vision clinics to aid lower-income families and those without close access to services.
Fox noted that his favorite part of the event every year is seeing the community come together.
"There are also a lot of regulars who come up from town," Fox said. "You get some characters there."
Tickets are $8 for adults and $4 for children. Adult admission is $7 if tickets are purchased in advance from the following businesses or from any Lions Club member: the Welches Mountain Building Supply, 67250 Highway 26; Clackamas County Bank, 6740 Highway 26, Welches; or Barlow Trail Roadhouse, 69580 Highway 26, Welches.
