Vernon Lions Help Out
This message was received from Lion Rick just after some of our members helped out at the Snow Show...
I just wanted to give you and your amazing Vernon Lions Club a huge shout out and thank you so much for volunteering at the Snow Show.
This was a last minute invite to be the recipients of the proceeds from the door donations and wow, was it ever fantastic.
The total for the two days was $10,902.56 !!!!!!!! Wow, what do I say but the people of Vernon are very generous and I firmly believe
that is because of the Lions and Camp Winfield and knowing all the money is going to a such a great cause. Please be sure to thank all
the Lions that came to help... On behalf of The BC Lions Society and Camp Winfield thank you so much as I could not have done this
Rick Harker, Manager Camp Winfield.

Thanks Rick for your kind words, and great news about the generous donations that we know you'll put to good use!
Another great opportunity to help out was the recent Upper Room Mission Breakfast that some of our members cooked up and served. Another one is planned for December.
70 Years of Service!
On November 5, the Vernon Lions Club celebrated the 70th anniversary of its charter with the International Association of Lions. That means that members of this club have been serving our community in many different ways for as long or longer than most of us can remember! We commemorated that anniversary with an evening visitation from our District 19D Governor, Shelley Costello, invited dignitaries and neighbouring Lions and their guests.
What does a charter anniversary mean? Just like any anniversary, it's a chance to recognize the achievements of the past, appreciate the value of the present, and look forward to continued well-being in the future. Click to read more. If you know a Vernon Lion, or see us at an event or just in passing, we'd be happy to hear your greeting and wishes for this occasion. And in return, we extend our thanks to you for your support and encouragement!
