The chuck wagon breakfast is one of the major fundraisers for the Lions Club each year. Lion Walt Libal said that event raises about $3000. Altogether, the Burney Lions raise about $25,000 a year. Of that, $6000 goes to support local scholarships. The rest is divided amongst various local charities.

It was her first experience of a Lions Club Chuck Wagon breakfast. When asked what she thought of the breakfast Melisha replied, “It’s really good! I think they should do the breakfast every month.”
