Members of the Greencastle Lions Club were busy flipping and serving about 1,000 pancakes during the annual Pancake Day Saturday, April 8, at Greencastle-Antrim Middle School. The breakfast is the club’s biggest fundraiser of the year.

The event drew 366 people, according to Bill Needy, who co-chairs the breakfast with Mike Stevens. The Lions also prepared 150 pounds of pork sausage, 55 pounds of turkey sausage and 60 pounds of puddin’, while diners downed 220 cups of coffee.

Leftovers were donated to a homeless shelter in Chambersburg, Needy noted.

Many of those attending also walked away with baked goods, homemade soups, spring items and toys sold by the Greencastle-Antrim Lioness Club and merchandise from a craft and vendor event.
