LIHU‘E — The East Kaua‘i Lions Club Pancake Breakfast March 3 was nothing short of a success, with a total of 1,543 breakfasts — 150 more than last year — being dished out.

The breakfast menu included pancakes, eggs, rice, fresh pineapple, Portuguese sausage and miso soup created by Lion Harvey Kinoshita and his wife Sandy, along with coffee.

While 538 people chose to dine-in at the Elsie Wilcox Elementary School cafeteria, the vast majority of breakfast dishes, 1,005 of them, were carried out for hungry families back at home.

“The largest crowd came between 8:30 and 9 a.m., at which time we served 412 meals,” Stephen Fujii of the East Kaua‘i Lions Club wrote in an email.

At $7 per ticket, the breakfast brought in more than $10,000 for the club’s yearly programs of service and community projects.

For those who missed out, the North Shore Lions Club will hold its annual breakfast April 7 from 7 to 11 a.m. at the Hanalei Elementary School cafeteria. In addition to a delicious breakfast menu, the event will feature a silent auction and hula.

Tickets cost $8 ($4 for keiki 12 and under), and can be purchased by calling Gary Pacheco at 652-2323.
