April Activities!

O'Keefe Ranch Cleanup

For the second year in a row, Vernon Lions Club members got together at the historic O'Keefe Ranch near Vernon to help get it spruced up and ready for spring visitors.

A crew of about 16 club members spent a total of 96 hours recently, and plan another afternoon of painting this month.

Autism Awareness

National Aurism Awareness Month

Once again, we are proud to support efforts to raise awareness surrounding the broad spectrum of autism disorders.

Our members were on hand to serve up refreshments at a recent event in Vernon.


Walk to Support Multiple Sclerosis

The Vernon MS Support Group is holding its annual walk in Polson Park on April 24, and the Vernon Lions will be there with our kitchen trailer to serve up burgers and bites (and to make a donation to this worthy cause!)

Come on out and help raise funds for their projects and say hi to our Lions!

Camp Winfield Spring Cleanup

Camp Winfield

April 30th will see Lions and other volunteers from the area heading south to Camp Winfield for a work day of raking, cleaning, painting and whatever other chores need to be done.

The Camp is one of three run by the BC Lions Society Easter Seals Camps - the other two being Camp Shawnigan on Vancouver Island and Camp Squamish which is north of Vancouver. These camps offer special summer experiences to disabled youths.

Masthead Photo...

Our current masthead photo shows two (female left and male right) Redhead diving ducks currently nesting at Cool's Pond in Vernon, photographed by Lion Mike Masella. This spring, pairs of Canada Geese, Mallards, American Coots, Gadwalls and Barrow's Goldeneyes have been seen along with one visiting Great Blue Heron. Non-waterfowl regularly frequent the area as well, especially the Redwinged Blackbird which thrives in wetland settings that are becoming less prevalent. Environmental welfare is one of the interests of Lions Clubs International.
