How about breakfast for 825?

 

Community Easter Breakfast – Okanagan Mission Community Hall

On Friday, April 7, 2023 the community came together for a pancake breakfast, face painting, a visit with the Easter bunny and finally an Easter egg hunt.  The event was hosted by the Okanagan Mission Community Hall with the pancake breakfast served by the Okanagan Mission Lions Club.   More than 800 people came through the doors and out of the rain to be served by the Lions with a massive assist from Tracy Gray, MP for Kelowna-Lake Country.

  • Like what you see above? Are you willing to try something new after COVID hangover? 
  • Can you spare a few hours here and there for community service?  Perhaps anxious to get going and do some good?  
  • Us too. With COVID and recent attrition we’ve found ourselves needing an infusion of new members, women and men, with some ideas for new projects and fund raising activities.  We have much to do with too few members. 
  • As a service organization, we focus our energy and resources on activities such as serving up pancake/hamburger concessions at community events and volunteering our labour where it’s needed. We support many local help and outreach organizations, i.e. Food Bank, Gospel Mission, CNIB, Alzheimer society, Women’s Resource Centre and many others.
  • Qualifications? None, zip, nada, just a desire to contribute to a bit of community service in return for working and socializing in a fun environment with likeminded people also trying to achieve the same. Hours are flexible, pay is not so good though. 
  • “Doing a little good for others gets you a lot of good in return.”
  • Come and check out the Okanagan Mission Lions Club, bring your spouses, friends, family too. Lots of room for new members. We meet once a month at the Okanagan Mission Community Hall, Lakeshore Road; second Monday at 6:30 PM.
  • Contact Ian Trulson: President, Okanagan Mission Lions okmlions77@gmail.com, phone: (250) 764-5261
