Lions Year Wrap-Up

Vernon Lions Year End Social

Lions all over the world are wrapping up their calendar year (July 1-June 30). The Vernon Lions held a well-attended social evening which was enjoyed by all.

Eloise and her crew from the Eagles kitchen

Every member received an award and thanks for their participation during 2014-15. An excellent dinner was prepared as usual by the ladies from the Eagles who have done a wonderful job all year.

Marnie MacKenzie

Long-time supporter Marnie MacKenzie - daughter of our founding president William MacKenzie - was a special guest and once again, she made a very substantial donation towards camperships at Camp Winfield.

The evening finished with our new Executive members being sworn in for the new year.

2nd Annual Bowling Event A Great Success!

The picture at left is not faulty. It was taken during the LIGHTS OUT game at the Vernon Lions Club's 2nd Annual "Bowling in the Dark Event" held Saturday, June 6, 2015 at Lincoln Lanes Bowling in Vernon, BC. The event raised funds to enable the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guide School to breed, raise, foster and train dogs for their Dog Guide Programs. Each Dog Guide costs approximately $25,000 to raise, train and place with a qualified recipient.

Bowl Dawgs Team from Community Futures

Bowlers enjoyed great games, educational tidbits and many went home with gift prizes. There was even a game to challenge their visual acuity... bowling while wearing special glasses to simulate the vision of a person with Retinitis Pigmentosa - a genetic disease causing slow but progressive loss of vision.

Many more photos are available, and for a sample, please click here for a two-page collage of images taken during the event. Thank you to all our bowlers, pledge donors, sponsors and other supporters!

Making a Splash!

The day was sunny and cool, but hearts were warm and the turnout tremendous. Thanks to everyone who participated.
