Flapjacks and rodeos go hand-in-hand, and they'll be plenty of both this weekend.

The Cochrane Lions are renowned for their pancakes and they'll be serving them up free of charge in partnership with the BGC of Cochrane and Area on Friday morning (Sept. 2) to kick off the weekend.

"We've kind of got ourselves a good name in town on these now and figured we'd treat the public to pancake breakfast between us and the Boys and Girls Club to give the rodeo weekend that nice kick start," says Chris Connon, Lions president and rodeo co-chair.

It kicks off at 8 a.m. and will continue as long as people are still in line, says Connon.
