Special to the Marion Times Standard 

As the holiday season approaches, there’s no better way to show your appreciation of local small businesses than by giving back to them.  

The Shack is doing just that by hosting its second annual PANCAKES WITH SANTA!! on Saturday, December 9th from 8-10am. All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Marion Veterinary Clinic, providing much-needed supplies such as dog/cat food, blankets, towels, and more. Children who attend the event are encouraged to give monetary donations in support of the clinic. Donations of any amount will be greatly appreciated. Come out and support a great cause while enjoying pancakes with Santa!
