THE Lions Club of Clarence has matched its annual Breakfast on the Boardwalk record, serving up more than 800 meals at the popular Bellerive event on 26 January.
Lions Club of Clarence president David McDavitt said the club had kept pace with the Australia Day attraction, which was continuing to grow each year.
“We were able to cook up a range of sausages, bacon and hamburgers for the many hungry patrons,” he said.
“The Clarence Lions members and their friends, who volunteered their time on the day, are to be commended for their great efforts.”
The conclusion of the Australia Day event saw no rest for the Lions members, however, as they moved straight on to organising the club’s “chocolate wheel” — a popular fixture at the Hobart Cup and Royal Hobart Regatta.
Mr McDavitt said the club was now preparing to repeat its Car Show event, which had proved successful at the inaugural event in November 2014.
He said planning was currently underway and that a date and venue would be announced in the near future.
“The 2014 car show had everything from a Riley and an Alvis to classic Jaguars and a Porsche,” Mr McDavitt said.
“We even had a McLaren super car and a Holden Maloo ute from Western Australia.
“At this year’s event we hope to include even more classic, vintage and veteran cars, as well as some hotrods and ratrods.”
Money raised at the car show will go towards bushfire relief efforts.
