The Schoolcraft Lions Club prepares pancakes for the multitudes on the 4th of July from 7 to 11 a.m. at the school’s upper elementary cafeteria. “It’s a great way to start the full day of activities in Schoolcraft,” according to Molly Hartlieb, a Lions Club member.
During the breakfast a special free vision screening for children ages 1-5 will be held. That’s because one of the missions of the national service organization is eyeglass assistance for those in need. Besides that, many of the dollars raised go right back into community for the Eagle’s Nest food pantry, weekend backpack program, and South County Community Services.
The cost is $6 for adults and $3 for children ages 6-12. Children under five and uniformed military and police are free. The Lions Club is a nonprofit organization that also supports Leader Dogs for the Blind, the Michigan Eye Bank, KidSight, and the Michigan All-State Band.
