Oxford Lions to host annual pancake supper
The Oxford Lions are still flipping after all these years, and will host their annual pancake supper after more than 60 years of serving the breakfast favorites in the evening.
The pancakes will hit the griddle Feb. 28 from 5- 8 p. m. at Flint Hill Elementary School.
The Oxford Lions are Partners in Education with Flint Hill and assist with school projects. At the end of each school year, the Lions provide bicycles to a boy and girl from the third, fourth and fifth grades whom teachers have selected as the mostimproved students.
Proceeds from the supper are used for service projects supported by the Oxford Lions Club. In addition the Flint Hill partnership, the Lions sponsor a Cub Scout Pack, Boy Scout Troop, Venture Crew, and American Heritage Girls.
Sight preservation also remains a primary focus of the Lions, who provide glasses to those in need and support the Lions Lighthouse and the Georgia Lions Camp for the Blind.
The Oxford Lions Club has supported its community since being chartered in 1951. For the past eight years, it has co- sponsored the Fourth of July Parade and Celebration with the City of Oxford.
The Oxford Lions invite the community to support them by coming to the pancake supper and enjoying all- you- can- eat plain or blueberry pancakes and Holifield sausages.
Adult tickets are $ 5, and child tickets are $ 3. Tickets can be purchased from any Oxford Lion or at the door.
