Lions Den News: We have a winner!

Not only did the Lions have a winner for their Canada Day Super-Valu draw, Agassiz itself had a winner!

Not only did the Lions have a winner for their Canada Day Super-Valu draw, Agassiz itself had a winner!

Our lucky draw winner – who wishes to remain anonymous — generously donated the entire $500 value to the Agassiz food bank.  As a result all of Agassiz benefits from our latest fundraising effort. And, community service is one of the main goals of Lions clubs.

Many thanks to our generous sponsors for making our June pub night at the Sasquatch such a great success. We raised over $600 to use to support community organizations such as Friendship House and Agassiz Senior Housing.

Our next fun fundraiser is coming quickly at the end of this month. Sunday, June 26 is the big day for the Lions annual car show. This is the one where we shut down Pioneer Ave. from the Observer to the Museum to turn it into the best looking parking lot in town! Filled with old and newer cars, trucks, and motorcycles, the street draws friends and families from the surrounding area to ooh and aah at those lovely vehicles! Cars – we had 110 last year – will be on show from 8 til 3. Only $10 to register an entry.

Did I mention we also have live music and a barbecue going? All that plus basket to raffle and a 50/50 draw to win! Set the date on your calendar for this family oriented fun day. Bring a chair and watch the goings on from the shade of Pioneer Park. Best of all – it’s FREE to visit, talk with the entrants, vote for the people’s choice, and enjoy a fun day in the park! Take a chance on the raffles, possibly go home with a little extra something!

See you there supporting our local Agassiz-Harrison Lions in their community service efforts!
