Spring 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.

Walk to Support Multiple Sclerosis

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

Thanks to all who contributed and stopped by to say hello!

Autism Awareness

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.

Camp Winfield Spring Cleanup

Camp Winfield

On April 30th Lions and other volunteers from the area headed south to Camp Winfield for a work day of raking, cleaning, painting and whatever other chores needed 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 a young family of Canada Geese currently residing 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.
