2016 BC Provincial Snow Show
Rick Harker, Manager of Camp Winfield, sent the Vernon Lions the following message:
"On behalf of the BC Lions Society and Easter Seals Camp Winfield I would like to thank you and all your members for their amazing participation in assisting us at the door. Your turnout was more than exceptional and believe me very much appreciated. The final door official donations were $11,576.80. Also the Vernon Snowmobile Club has kicked in an extra $2,655.20 and will be challenging other Snowmobile Clubs to meet or beat this pledge. Again thank you for your support."
Helping others with their Projects
Opening of the new Co-Op gas station benefits Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation
The opening of the new Co-Op Gas station on 27th Street took place recently and the Vernon Lions were present to cook burgers and collect donations for the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation. The morning started out pretty balmy but that changed towards noon when the wind hit - cold - cold - cold! A total of $370.00 was raised thanks to the donations of those who stopped by to say hello and enjoy a bite!
