On Sunday, March 4 and 11, the Union Lions Club will be holding a fundraising pancake breakfast at the Union Fire Station at 6606 Main St. from 7 to 11 a.m.

Proceeds from the March 4 breakfast will be divided among two worthy causes. Half of the amount will be donated to Northern Illinois University’s special education program. They educate student

s entering the field and provide services for the visually impaired. The second portion of the donation is for residents in need of visual impairment aids or procedures. The breakfast to be held on March 11 will benefit the Rodriguez family who suffered a tragic car accident in January.

The Lions will be preparing a delicious breakfast and hope that you will join them on one, or both days.
