Under the leadership of Lion Paul Foster, the Centre Lions Club has set a goal of raising $10,000 from Pancake Day 2005, scheduled for Saturday, March 19, in the activities building of Centre First United Methodist Church.

Over the past year, the Centre Lions Club donated $1,000 to the Cherokee County Drug Program, $500 for the Dec. 26 tsunami disaster relief, $600 to Lions Youth Camp (four students were sent), $2,500 for an eye screening machine which is used constantly in Cherokee County, $500 to the Child Advocacy Center of Cherokee County, $3,000 to Alabama Lions Sight, $2,000 to Lions Interna-tional Foundation, $2,400 to supply eyeglasses for patients in the area, $500 to Camp Seale Harris for students with diabetes, $200 for candy and the East/West ball Game, $100 to sponsor the Leo Club and $2,899 to support the Talladega Broom Factory operated by Alabama School for the Deaf and Blind.
Lions Club members encourage everyone to come out and support the club again this year. Tickets to Pancake Day are $3 each. Those interested in purchasing a ticket or those businesses interested in being a Pancake Day sponsor this year may contact any Lions Club member
