Uxbridge Lions Donate to Jumpstart

DONATION TO JUMP START

2018 PANCAKE BREAKFAST

Our members worked hard and had lots of fun providing 400 breakfasts to adults and children from Uxbridge. Our day was an enormous success, exceeding the funds raised in 2017 while accepting payment by donation rather than with fixed ticket prices. Uxbridge Lions Harold Graves, George Chenette, Bob Armitage, Greg Kearns, Ted Eng and Jean Doucet worked to provide the pancakes, bacon and sausage while USS students helped clean. We had much help in the kitchen from Cynthia Nidd and Lion Dan and his wife and two Leos from the Omemee Lions. Lion Cathy Boone headed up the dining room with help from her daughter Katie Fortune, Denise Graves and our friendly Lion mascot. Lion Rick Carlstrom and his daughters took their place at the Membership Table while Lions Eric Nidd and Mike Fortune greeted guests.
