Lions Club roars out its thanks to many people

-A A +A

The Harriman Lions Club recently completed a most successful “World’s Greatest Pancake Breakfast.” We have many folks to thank for making this effort a success.  

We thank  Mary Long and Bobby Webb at Harriman Steak and Diner for providing their restaurant and kitchen facilities.  Next, our thanks go to many of their staff who volunteered their Saturday time off to help us: Jerrecce Hacker, Gary Webb, Ray Page, Charlie Reynolds and Tammie Smith.  

Income from the breakfast will go for our many community service projects. Our most important project is our yearly eye screening of Roane County children from 6 months to 6 years in Head Start and pre-k through first grade.  

Eye problems discovered during the screening process and treated at an early age can be corrected and will help the learning process.  We also provide eye exams and glasses for many of the less fortunate citizens of our community.   

Many thanks to our community supporters, including Bob’s Hamburgers, Brook Schwepfinger, Brown’s Greenhouse, Bunch Marine, Center, Mr. Clean, Charlie’s Aluminum & Glass Products, Harriman Mayor Chris Mason, Dr. Clary P.
