From the Lions Den August, 2017
It was rewarding to see the new flagpoles being used on Canada Day. The Lions installed 3 new poles so that, along with the Canadian and BC flags, there will be an opportunity for special event groups to fly their own.
The BBQ’s are busy this summer what with Canada Day, baseball games, the Church Fair and the Fall Fair happening during the holidays. Thanks to the cooks, those who came out to set up and take down tents and clean up.
Our biggest cooking event, of course, is the Salmon BBQ on the Labour Day Sunday, September 3rd. If you haven’t already purchased a 222 ticket, just ask any Lions member or check with the Home Hardware crew. Beside the winners of the draw, the benefactor of the funds this year is the Mayne Island Food Bank .
Our work bee at the Dinner Bay Lions shed was well attended and enabled us to get all the tables and chairs “shipshape” for the weddings and celebrations this summer and to do a general clean-up. The outdoor storage area behind the shed has been framed and the siding put on as well.
Keep a lookout for our Bingo events coming up and more details about the Salmon BBQ.
Elsewhere in the Mayneliner, Alan Guy is giving a report on the trip to Chicago that he and Janet made at the beginning of July to the Lions International Conference. Quite the event.
Allen Slade, our new president, will be sharing his ideas about how the Lions function in our community in next month’s Mayneliner.
Remember that we now have a new eyeglass drop off location at the recycling centre, thanks to Grant and the crew. Finally, we hope to see you in or at the big Fall Fair parade!
