Look up the word service in the dictionary and here are a couple of definitions you will find: Helpful act or acts, being useful to others, work in the service of others. You could apply all of these definitions to members of the Clinton Lions Club. They recently (on Jan. 29) hosted their sixth annual Pancake Breakfast to benefit Families Helping Families and serve they did!
From setting up the Green Room at the Town Hall to preparing every single breakfast for those who attended (231 people attended) the Clinton Lions Club members were everywhere. This breakfast has raised thousands of dollars and thousands of pounds of food over the years. The food and the monies donated all stay within the Town of Clinton-food is given to the Clinton Food Pantry to help re-stock its shelves and the monies are used to replenish Families Helping Families' Energy Assistance Fund.
The Pancake Breakfast is only one of the many civic activities that the Clinton Lions Club engages in. It is committed to make our community a better place to call home. Without its members and all they do, Clinton wouldn't be the same. We thank them not only for their efforts on this Pancake Breakfast, but for their continuing service to the town of Clinton.
