Sheridan Sundowners, Big Horn and Story Lions

Join Forces for Black Friday Fundraiser

Yes, we are supposed to get up early for Black Friday Shopping, but 4:30 a.m. to get ready for a Pancake Breakfast? Sheridan Sundowners partnered with Big Horn Lions Club and Story Lions Club to put on a Pancake Breakfast at the Sheridan Honda and Power Sports from 7-9 a.m. on Friday, November 25, 2022. Seventeen members helped set up tables and griddles, cook, make coffee, take money, pour drinks, mix batter, and clean up. We visited with breakfast guests, and provided club information.

The event was proposed to the Sheridan Club by the new Sheridan Honda manager, Candice Crane, originally from Wisconsin. Candice wanted to kick off the day before holding a car and sports vehicle auction at 9:30. Sheridan Honda furnished all the food which included sausage, bacon, and eggs along with pancakes.

Profits from this event were earmarked for our Vision Screening account, and we set a goal of $500. Lion Leslea Rapp demonstrated and discussed our vision screening machine, and some information about how the vision screening works was broadcast while people ate.

We served around 68 people, and Sheridan Honda generously donated the balance to help us reach $500. We are looking forward to continuing this fundraiser on a yearly basis and are very glad to have a new sponsor in the Sheridan business community.
