Lions’ Easter Bunny Shopping Spree

Lions annual Super-Valu Shopping Spree sees tickets scooped up quick by community

Maggie Milner of Chilliwack was the happy winner of the March 25 Easter Bunny Super-Valu shopping spree. This very popular fundraising event for the Agassiz-Harrison Lions saw all 500 tickets scooped quick like a bunny by the community.

Maggie was helped to reach high and low by her son Charles, Lions Brenda Jorgensen and Chris Novak and Chris’ friend Sergei Kojokaharev.  With carts piled high, Maggie stocked her kitchen shelves and ran out of room in her garage pantry as well. She found treats for herself and her family and grandchildren. It was a prize she never dreamed of winning, and she already looking forward to getting her tickets for the next shopping spree.

Because of the huge response, the Lion’s Super-Valu shopping spree will be available in time for Easter, Canada Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas shopping. Odds of winning are very good as only 500 tickets are printed for each event. This is a real deal for a $2 investment. Thanks Super-Valu for helping us make this happen!

The Lions have been busy through the winter season. Along with a cash donation, we filled and delivered over 100 Christmas stockings full of personal care items to the Salvation Army in Chilliwack to distribute as part of their Christmas outreach program. We also helped at the kids Christmas shopping day at All Saints Church. Santa kept us busy!

In February our club celebrated 51 years of service to the residents of Agassiz and surrounding area. This year alone, we have financially helped the Harrison Highlanders pipe band, the Aquanauts swim club, the anti-bullying HELP project, slide into summer at the Fernie Coomb pool, and the Kilby historic site to name a few. It is through your support of our annual car show, pub nights, raffles, draws and other fundraisers that we are able to do so much to make out town a better place to live and work. Thank you!

Upcoming Lion fundraising events to continue our community work:

May 2 – Lion’s garage sale at All Saints Anglican Church – treasures for all and bake tables. 9- 3 p.m.

May 10 – Mother’s Day pancake breakfast at the Legion – by donation

June 26 – Pub night at the Sasquatch Inn – fun and food, tickets from any Lion
