One of the North St. Paul Lions club fundraising projects is the semi-annual Lions Pancake Breakfast to be held at the American Legion Post 39 in North St. Paul on April 23 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The cost is $7 for adults, and a portion of the proceeds will go to the North High Polar Pack program, which is co-organized by St. Mark’s Church. A portion of the proceeds will also go to the North St. Paul Area Food Shelf.

Some current Lions Clubs International projects include International Youth Exchange, Special Olympics, Leader Dogs, the Eye Foundation, Hearing Foundation and Diabetes Foundation. The newest service project of the North St. Paul Lions Club is KidSight, an eye screening program for preschool children. The North St. Paul Lions Club meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month at 6:30 p.m. at American Legion Post 39, 2678 Seventh Ave. E., North St. Paul.
