Manila Lions Club held its annual pancake supper Saturday at the Manila School Cafeteria. Serving pancakes is a Christmas tradition in the area with all proceeds going to the Goodfellow Christmas baskets distributed by the Lions Club each year. Approximately 100 boxes are delivered around the community.

In addition to the pancake supper, Lion Club members will be "ringing the bell," another Christmas tradition, in Manila.

The pancake supper is held each year on the same day as the Manila Christmas Parade.

Assisting in the pancake supper this year were servers from the Manila High School FCCLA.

Approximately 500 were served at the 2006 event. The Lions cooked 110 pounds of sausage, 120 pounds of bacon, used 26 dozen eggs and 50 pounds of flour in preparing the 1,300 pancakes.

Club members expressed their appreciation to everyone who supports the pancake supper to benefit the community.

"We appreciate the FCCLA members helping this year," Danny Robbins said. "They did a great job."
