Lebanon Senior Citizens Center had its fifth-annual Country Breakfast and Flea Market on Saturday.

The day started with a breakfast buffet that included eggs, sausage, bacon, ham, hash brown casserole and biscuits. The flea market followed.

Donations the center received from flea market sales, along with the breakfast, raised $2,000 for the center. Patti Watts, director of the Lebanon Senior Citizens Center, said the money would make the center an even better place. 

“We had close to 350 people in attendance and served more than 300 meals,” Watts said. “We use this fundraiser to put back into the center. The weather was great, and everybody had a good day.” 

The Lebanon Senior Citizens Center’s motto, “We Care,” is short and simple, but well describes the love and attention given to its 1,800-plus members, Watts said.

“Our mission is to give purpose and value to the lives of our members,” Watts said. “We try to offer a little bit of something and especially friendship. For many of our members, the center is a lifeline. It’s where they can have something to look forward to each day.”
