Oxford Lions pancake supper tomorrow

The Oxford Lions are still flipping flapjacks after a half century.

Charter members John Burson and Carlos Meyer said the Oxford Lions Club has been hosting its annual pancake supper for more than 50 years.

This year’s popular social event will be from 5-8 p.m. Friday, March 1 at Flint Hill Elementary School.

All-you-can-eat plain or blueberry pancakes and local Holifield sausages are $5 for adults and $3 for children. Tickets may be purchased from any Oxford Lion or at the door.

For many years, the supper was held at Palmer Stone Elementary School in Oxford, but since that school closed the event has been held at nearby Flint Hill. Oxford Lions are Partners in Education with the school and assist with school projects.

At the end of each school year, the Lions provide a bicycle to a boy and girl from the 3rd, 4th and 5th grades whom the teachers have selected as the most improved students.

Proceeds from the supper are used for service projects supported by the Oxford Lions. In addition to Flint Hill, the Lions support youth in many areas, including a Cub Scout Pack, Boy Scout Troop, Venture Crew and American Heritage Girls.

Sight preservation remains a primary focus of the Lions, who provide glasses to those in need and support the Lions Lighthouse and the Georgia Lions Camp for the Blind. The Oxford Lions have supported their community since being chartered in 1951. For the past 8 years they have co-sponsored the Fourth of July Parade and Celebration with the city of Oxford.
