NL Optimists’ pancake breakfast March 4

NORTH LIBERTY– The Optimist Club of North Liberty will host its 44th annual pancake breakfast from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 4, in the North Liberty Community Center gymnasium, 520 W. Cherry St.
Proceeds will benefit more than a dozen North Liberty youth programs, as all Optimist clubs have a mission to be “friends of youth.” In 2015, the North Liberty Optimists donated about $25,000 to support about 20 North Liberty youth activities, including the free summer lunch program for kids at the North Liberty Recreation Center’s egg hunt.
The breakfast– featuring pancakes, eggs, sausage, orange juice, milk and coffee or tea– is the North Liberty club’s largest annual fundraiser. Tickets are $6 for adults and $2 for kids ages 3-10. Admission is free for children under age 3.
For more information about the club, including membership and its popular Avenue of Flags program, visit nloptimist.org online or search for “North Liberty Optimists” on Facebook.
