It’s time for pancakes and sausage as the Muskogee Noon Lions Club hosts its annual Pancake Day from 6 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Wednesday, March 27, in the Muskogee Civic Center. Those attending can eat all they want for $5 each and tickets are available at the door.
The “Pride in Oklahoma” menu includes all-Oklahoma products with the essential pancakes made by experienced Lions and celebrity cooks using Shawnee Mills products, served with Griffin’s Syrup from Muskogee’s own Griffin Food Company, dairy products from Highland Dairy, drinks from Love’s, coffee from Henderson Coffee. A new addition is the popular Greer’s Ranch House Country Style Sausage.
This event has been held for more than 50 years and benefits many charities in Muskogee. Through its fundraising activities, the Muskogee Noon Lions Club was able to aid several groups in 2018, including Oklahoma School for the Blind, Muskogee County 4-H, Kelly B. Todd; Ark of Faith, scholarships for seniors at three Muskogee high schools; Oklahoma Lions Club Boys Ranch; Oklahoma Eye Bank; Lions World Services for the Blind; and Leader Dog.
Muskogee Noon Lions Club marked its 101st anniversary last fall and is celebrating more than 102 years of service to Muskogee. It is one of the oldest Lions Clubs in the world. Founded in 1916, it helped organize Lions Clubs International in 1917 making it one of the few Founders Clubs in the world.
This year’s event is predicted to be the biggest one yet for the organization.
