‘Hotcakes for Heroes’ fundraiser planned for Dec. 8

KELSEYVILLE, Calif – Operation Tango Mike and the Kelseyville Lions will co-host “Hotcakes For Heroes” on Sunday, Dec. 8.

The breakfast will feature hotcakes, along with choices of sausage, eggs, biscuits and gravy. Beverages include juice and coffee.

You may also order the deluxe version, by simply requesting “the works.”

Operation Tango Mike volunteers will take orders and serve patrons.

Santa will be at the event, so bring your camera.

The event will run from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Kelseyville Lions Club, 4335 Sylar Lane, with a suggested donation of $8.

Proceeds benefit Operation Tango Mike in the ongoing effort to ship monthly care packages to deployed military personnel.

Operation Tango Mike is approaching 17 years of supporting the troops and having shipped nearly 22,000 care packages.

Currently, monthly shipping fees alone average $1,900. Coupled with the expense of care package supplies, the all-volunteer non-profit spends nearly $4,000 per month to send the much-needed and appreciated care packages.

Operation Tango Mike supporter, Ms. Garryett Sheridan, supplied this poem which was included in the November care packages:


I’m writing to a soldier
That I don’t even know.
I pray that God protects you
Wherever you may go.

Our Thanks will never be enough
To all of you who serve.
We can’t put into words
The recognition you deserve.

We wave our flag with honor.
The old Red, White & Blue.
It represents our freedom
Because of men like you.

I pray that God will keep you safe,
Throughout your daily toil
’Til each and everyone one of you
Is back on U.S. soil.

And when you’ve reached your homeland,
And start the celebration,
From this entire Nation.
