Once again the Creston Lions Club members are rolling up their sleeves and trading in their vests for aprons to help the good folks at the Therapeutic Activation Program for Seniors stay financially afloat.
On Feb. 12, almost 120 people turned out to the TAPS hall to enjoy the famous Lions signature breakfast, which features two pancakes, two sausages, two fried eggs, juice and coffee for $5. After expenses, almost $400 was raised for TAPS, the seniors organization that really believes in helping itself, along with a helping hand from groups like the Lions. Bridgett and Rosalie from the TAPS organization and a handful of volunteers let the Lions take over their kitchen for the occasion.
On March 19, breakfast number 2 will take place at the same hall with the same menu. This time, it will start earlier, running from 8 a.m.-noon.
The breakfast happens just two days after St. Patrick’s Day and wearing of the green will be encouraged but not required. Nothing green will appear on the plates, though. Join us on Saturday as we will say, “Top of the morning to you,” and help TAPS help itself.
