Cedar Hill Lions Club invites everyone in the community to attend their 18th annual pancake breakfast Feb. 22. Tickets are only $5 a person for a menu that includes lots of food and fun. The club’s hard-working volunteers serve pancakes, sausage, and beverages from 7-11 a.m. The pancake breakfast also features door prizes, and always draws a crowd to enjoy the food and fun. The annual event is held at the Good Shepherd Church, 915 Old Straus Road in Cedar Hill. Tickets are $6 if purchased at the door.
The Sheri Borth Pancake Breakfast is named for the club’s first female president. The late Sherri Borth started the annual pancake breakfast as a fundraiser for the club in 2003. Borth was a prominent real estate broker who owned her own business in Cedar Hill. She is also recognized for encouraging more women to join the club and to hold leadership roles. Susan Bond is the current president of the CH Lions Club.
The Pancake Breakfast raises funds for the Cedar Hill Lions Club Charities, Inc. The 501c3 tax exempt organization operates as a separate organization from the CH Lion Club. A separate board of directors handles their charitable donations.
