We're ready to go for the 66th Annual Lion's Club Pancake Festival.

This truly is an event that makes Lubbock, Lubbock. We all get together and eat too much pancakes, sausage and orange drink. Of course, coffee, bacon, milk and more are all available but the "big three" bring that familiar taste of home.

You can actually purchase your tickets online here. You can also get your tickets at any Bolton's Oil location or from any Lion's Club member.

I'll be on the first grill, so come get some expert cakes! I've been doing this for so long, I don't even know how many years it's been. I just love getting up and cookin'!

Profits from the festival benefit over 30 charities, most notably the Lions Club Adult Eyeglasses program and the Texas Lions Camp For Children With Special Needs.
