Sunday’s Barker Lion/Barker Music Parent Club Pancake Breakfast and basket auction is dedicated to the memory of Lion John Hayden, who never missed his chance at the griddle to help local organizations. The March 14 breakfast runs from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for children or $15 for a family with four children. Breakfast includes pancakes, eggs, home fries, sausage, toast, juice and coffee, tea or milk.
Local artist C. Gordon Porter donated an original acrylic painting (value
$495) titled “Zinnia Bouquet” for a special $1 raffle. In addition, Oak Orchard Concrete is donating two Buffalo Sabres tickets for the March 31 game plus a Sabres basket. The $1 special raffle will be drawn at the breakfast. During the morning they will also have musical performing groups, a baked goods sale and a memorabilia table with items from previous school musicals. All high school music students have pre-sale tickets or call Matthew Sweeney at 795-9257 to purchase them. Profits from past breakfasts, thanks to
the Lions, will provide concert dress clothes for grades 4-12 and they hope to be wearing them at the May concert for all to see.
