Pancake Breakfast a Yummy Experience!
August 4 was a beautiful, hot, sunny day and brought out a huge crowd to the Farmer's Market at Kal Tire Place in Vernon. In addition to fresh fruits, veggies and handicrafts, many patrons of the market enjoyed our on-the-spot breakfast opportunity.
The smell of hot pancakes and sausages cooking up in our kitchen trailer attracted more than 250 people to step up and order a delicious breakfast. On behalf of the Vernon Lions, thanks to everyone who enjoyed our efforts!
Bowling for Dog Guides a Huge Success!
The Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guide Canine Vision Program will be the beneficiary of the proceeds from a bowling night hosted by Lincoln Lanes in Vernon, BC. Everyone who tried using the special glasses learned what it might be like to live with a vision impairment.
Vernon Lion Gail Pifer - a graduate recipient of seeing eye dog Tyrell - did an incredible job of organizing the inaugural evening which is sure to become an annual event.
Major sponsors were Vernon Veterinary Clinic, Drs. Fellenz and Hollands of The Mustard Seed Clinic, and Petland, Vernon. The Lumby Lions Club also made a significant donation, and Elephant Storage provided excellent sponsor signage at cost only.
Lane sponsors were The Nucerity Group, Safeway Vernon Square, Vernon Mayor Robert Sawatzky, The Morning Star, Hogarth's Pharmacy, Vernon Lion Bill Friend, Rene Gendron of the MS Society, and Vernon Optometry. Food refreshments were generously donated by Safeway Vernon Square, Cobs Bread, Billy D's Restaurant and Vernon Lion Jackie Tardell. The Vernon Lions would also like to thank all of the individuals and businesses who donated silent auction items, collected pledges, and/or participated by bowling.
Lions Help with
Do It For Dad Walk/Run
Father's Day, June 15, 2014 was the 15th anniversary of the Do It For Dad Walk/Run in support of Prostate Cancer awareness and research. While many people stepped up to participate, organize and volunteer to make this event successful, the Vernon Lions were out in force to man water stations and direct parking. We even had some help from our neighbours and friends, the Armstrong Lions. Check out our Activities page for more photos.
