Bowling Green Noon Lions have a vision this National Pancake Day

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Tuesday is National Pancake Day and everywhere you look, pancakes are being served up.

One local organization had a vision when they started serving their pancakes on this date morning. The Bowling Green Noon Lions Club, the local chapter of the national charitable organization, is hosting its 70th annual pancake breakfast that started at 7 a.m. and ran until 6 p.m. at the Presbyterian Church of Bowling Green.

In addition to the all-you-can-eat pancakes, the Lions served sausage and coffee for a donation of only six dollars.

The money raised is going to help furnish eyeglasses to those who can’t afford them.

The Lions’ first vice-president, Clay Diamond, said he’s happy to carry on the tradition. Volunteers from the Lion’s Club started cooking the first batch of sausage at 4 a.m. and people started lining up for breakfast by 6:30.
