Lions Pancake Breakfast May 20-21, Sons of Norway luncheon May 20

POULSBO — The Poulsbo Noon Lions Club will host its 46th annual Viking Fest Lions Pancake Breakfast on May 20-21 in the North Kitsap High School cafeteria.

Hours: 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday; 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday.

The breakfast includes all-you-can-eat pancakes with eggs, sausage, milk, juice, coffee and tea. The cost of the breakfast is $8 for adults and $5 for children 12 and younger. Purchase tickets at the door.

Net proceeds from this event go to scholarships for North Kitsap-area high school graduates. Plenty of free parking will be available.

Lions Club members will have a collection box at the breakfast and encourage the community to bring no-longer-needed hearing aids, used eyeglasses (including prescription and nonprescription sunglasses) and non-prescription “readers,” which will be used to help people with vision or hearing needs.

The Poulsbo Lions Club has more than 90 members and meets at 12:15 p.m. every Thursday at Poulsbo First Lutheran Church.

The Evening Pride Branch meets at 6:30 p.m. the first and third Thursdays of the month at St. Olaf’s Catholic Church.

Lions clubs are men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfill those needs. Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization with nearly 1.4 million members in approximately 45,000 clubs in 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.

Since 1917, Lions clubs have aided the blind and visually impaired, the hearing impaired and those with diabetes. The Lions also have a strong commitment to community service and serving youth throughout the world.
