It is that time of year, the Aston Lions are having the Spring Pancake Breakfast! Where do you ask? The Aston Community Center, of course. When? why on March 26, 2017 from 7:30 AM until 12 PM. The menu is pancakes, sausage, tater tots, scrambled eggs, hot tea, coffee, and of course choclate milk for the children. What is the cost? Why only $8 for adults, $4 for children, and those little ones under 2 eat free. Where can you get seconds for that price?
On December 10 the Aston Lions provided toys for 51 children. After toy shopping they and their parents went to Pennell Elementary for refreshments and a visit with SANTA.
For nearly 70 years the Aston Lions have provided a Christmas Party for invited children from our community.
