MIDLOTHIAN

The Midlothian Lions Club is serving unlimited pancakes, sausage, orange juice and coffee to benefit local youth.

The semiannual pancake breakfast will be held from 7—10:30 a.m. Saturday, June 16 at the Midlothian Civic Center, located at Main Street and Eleventh Street.

Adult tickets are $5 at the door, while children are $2. Tickets in advance can be purchased from any Midlothian Lion member for $3. The Lions Club is also conducting a drawing for a Remington 1187 Sportsman 12 gauge shotgun. Raffle tickets cost $10 each.

SWFA Outdoors sponsored the shotgun, and the winner must be lawfully eligible to possess a firearm.

The profits from the Lions semiannual pancake breakfast go to support the Texas Lions Camp for disabled children, children who battle cancer, who have type one diabetes and other major childhood illnesses.

"The youth is our future. The majority of kids we help come from single-parent homes, and we serve as positive role models," the president of the Midlothian Lions Club, Paul Stephenson, said.

The Lions Club also gives scholarships to graduating Midlothian ISD high school seniors, provide glasses for needy children and check the eyes of preschool children with the new high tech SPOT device and a dozen other good causes.
