THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Lions and Rescue Squad Serve Pancakes Again
Issue Date: March 22, 2018
In 1951, fifty-two Pound and Coleman men get together and form the Coleman-Pound Lions Club.
In 1954, 20 men from the communities of Coleman and Pound start a Rescue Squad. One of Marinette and Oconto County's first Civic sponsored Rescue Squads. The first issue was how to fund the newly formed Coleman Rescue Squad. Seven of the 20 members of the newly formed Squad were Lions. They came up with an idea for a breakfast on Sunday for the Rescue Squad. The Plan was Coleman-Pound Lions Club Sunday Breakfast with all you can eat pancakes and "Kinziger" pork sausage at St. Peters Hall (now St. Anne's). All Profits from the event go to the Coleman Rescue Squad.
Now an annual event for the Coleman Pound area, the Lions Pancake and Sausage Palm Sunday Breakfast is tradition. The Rescue Squad has benefited from the Pancake Breakfast's held over the years. As time moved forward other service and school organizations also benefited from the estimated $64,000 raised.
Fast forward to 2018, 64 years later, the Coleman-Pound Lions and the Coleman Rescue Squad join together again. On Palm Sunday, March 25 at Coleman High School, the Lions and Squad will serve up pancakes and sausage as well as scrambled eggs and French toast along with milk and coffee. Breakfast is all you can eat. Cost is $7 for adults, $5.50 for students, (age 6 to 11), under 6 are free. Serving is from 8 am to 1 pm. Along with breakfast, the Lions will be having bucket raffles with many prizes from local businesses and big prizes from Gendron's Inc. and Lion Bill's work shop.
Get blood pressure and sugar level checked by the squad before or after eating.
