Although not as many showed up as in years past, the Cadiz Lions Club still managed to raise a healthy amount of money to pay for eyeglasses in the community at their annual pancake breakfast Saturday.

Cathy Swinkowski, who helped organize the breakfast in the basement of the Cadiz United Methodist Church with her husband, John, said that this year’s early daylight savings time might have been a factor. The breakfast lasted from 6 a.m. until after noon, but not as people may have wanted to come so early since daylight didn’t even arrive until about 6:30 that morning.

Either way, the Lions were out in full force preparing pancakes and sausages. Laid out on the serving table were the usual breakfast staples of coffee, milk, orange juice and milk. And for those who weren’t stuffed enough already, there were also some sweets at the next table.

Norma Campbell, wife of Cadiz President John Campbell, said that the Lions provide a valuable service in giving free eye exams at the schools and nursing homes. If a need arises, they will even pay for glasses. The only criteria are that they live in the community. This is especially helpful for senior citizens, she said.
