By Jennifer Woods - [email protected]

Have plans for this Saturday yet? The Jeffersonville Lions Club will be holding an all-you-can-eat breakfast with proceeds to support local projects.

The “All You Can Eat Breakfast of Pancake, Sausage, Homemade Biscuits and Gravy” will start at 7 a.m. and end at 1 p.m., while supplies last.

The breakfast will be held at the Jeffersonville Lions Club building, located at 1 Railroad St. in Jeffersonville.

Adults can eat for $8, and kids under age 12 can eat for $4. While carry-out will be available, dine-in is also an option for this meal.

Jeffersonville Lions Club member Larry Schriver said, “we’ve got very good seating capacity.”

The breakfast is a fundraiser to help support the Jeffersonville Lions Club projects, including Vision, Pediatric Cancer, Diabetes, Jeffersonville Fireworks, Miami Trace scholarships and Jeffersonville Ball Teams.

“The Lions spend a lot of time on eye-site issues,” said Schriver. “Some of the ways the Lions can help those with problems seeing or with blindness is with seeing eye dogs, pilot dogs, canine companions.”

According to, “a Pilot Dog can be a life-changing companion for people who are blind or visually impaired, providing confidence and independence. Because of the generosity of our donors, we are able to provide exceptional guide dogs, handler training, orientation and mobility training, on-campus housing, room and board, and so much more, all completely free for our students.”

According to, “Canine Companions is leading the service dog industry so our clients and their dogs can live with greater independence. We provide service dogs to adults, children and veterans with disabilities and facility dogs to professionals working in healthcare, criminal justice and educational settings. Since our founding in 1975, our dogs and all follow-up services are provided at no cost to our clients.

“Independence shouldn’t be limited to those who look or live a certain way. Disability reaches all races, classes and backgrounds, and Canine Companions will too. Clients come to Canine Companions because of our reputation, the quality of our dogs, the experience of our training staff and the desire to lead life with greater independence. We are committed to providing services to all qualified clients.”

Schriver explained that all are welcome to attend and enjoy the breakfast.
