The Osseo Lions will host its annual Palm Sunday Pancake Breakfast April 13, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Osseo-Maple Grove American Legion, 260 Fourth Ave. S.E. in Osseo. Served will be all the pancakes and sausage you can eat for just $8. Costs for kids 3 to 10 to eat is $5. The Lions have discounted tickets at Deans Super Market for $7. All proceeds benefit local and national Lions projects.

If anyone would like to drop in to one of the Osseo Lions’ business meetings, they take place every second Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. at the Osseo Community Center, 415 Central Ave.
