LAKE COUNTY – The annual Verna Morris Memorial Pancake Breakfast, held Feb. 10 in Kelseyville, was a success, according to organizers.


The fundraiser for Easter Seals Northern California Lake County helps the agency provide families with transportation costs for out-of-county medical visits for children.


Ninety-two people had breakfast, with a total of $1,800 donated. That will provide about 30, $60 Verna Morris stipends this year for the 6- through 18-year-old group.


An additional grant that is expected from the First Five Commission for the 0 to 5 year old group would provide an additional 50, $60 stipends for 2008-09.


Last year the program provided 92 travel stipends, helping families travel to medical appointments at hospitals in San Francisco and at UC Davis, and Oakland Children's Hospital.


Special thanks go to the Kelseyville Lions Club for sponsoring and the Big Valley Lions Club for serving everyone. Thanks also to Mary Borjon, to Bill Morris and others for for their creative thinking and starting this fund in 1997.
