Duluth Lions Club 59th Annual Pancake Day is This Thursday [VIDEO]
It's something I look forward to every year, flippin' pancakes for the Duluth Lion's Club. My husband told me a few years back that he has wanted to flip pancakes at the Lion's Club Pancake Day since he attended the event as a five year old boy. I told him I could make that dream come true and we've been flippin' ever since! We're excited to be helping out again this Thursday, hope to see you there!
By the time he's done with work and we get to the DECC its' around 5pm, THE BUSIEST time! Don't worry about dinner plans this Thursday, May 5. The Lions Club members will be hard at work making pancake batter and flippin' cakes to raise money for several organizations dealing with hearing, sight and youth to name a few. New this year, BACON! That's right, bacon strips will be available at the extras station and gluten free pancakes while they last this year too!
It's one of those local events that is more than just a pancake feed. You will inevitably see friends, neighbors, and business acquaintances that you haven't talked to in months, sometime years. Being in the media, it's a chance for me to chat with other media staff in the Northland while we pour coffee together. Plus, the food is delicious and the coffee is hot! Their Pancake Day Chair, Mike Mazzio said they hope to $80,000 and serve 10,000 people. I hope that you and your family are planning on helping them reach their goals.

I use to be a Lion's Club member until my "plate" got too full. so I know first hand how much time and effort they put into the event. The planning months out, the set-up the day before and the exhausting physical and mental toll that the day itself takes. Not to mention the day after, when grills need to be cleaned and all equipment needs to be stored for next year. I wanted to make sure the Lion's Club members know how much their dedication and commitment is appreciated by myself and the Community to continue the much needed programs their fundraising supports!
