Lions Holiday Party Pix
Our annual Holiday Party was on Wednesday, December 11 in downtown Winter Park at DaVinci Restaurant in Cooper Creek Square. We started with cocktail hour, excellent appetizers, a very brief meeting (Ingrid didn't even have corrections for the minutes!) and a wonderful dinner followed by socializing into the evening. DaVinci even sent us home with fudge and a card for a free glass of wine. Photos are available online in our photo album by clicking here.
Festival of Trees 2013 Photos
The 2013 Festival of Trees photos are now available on our Lions Club Photo Gallery by clicking here. There are two separate photo albums, so be sure to look at both. Thanks to our photographers, Karen Bishop, Julie Richards and Jerry Nissen. Special thanks also to Jan and Bob Boynton and their tireless crew of volunteers! Thanks also to Santa and Mrs Claus for making an appearance at this busy time of year.
If you enjoyed the Festival of Trees, please think about joining Lions Club. We're not religious, political or business oriented. We're just about serving our community and having some fun in the process! Lions Club is not an expensive or exclusive club. In fact, we are inexpensive and inclusive. For more information about our club and becoming a member, explore the topics under the JOIN US tab.
Our Christmas tree lot is up and running at it's usual spot in front of Fontenot's in King's Crossing. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped unload, setup and tag trees! We'll have volunteers to help sell trees on weekends beginning Thanksgiving. When we don't have volunteers on hand please take your money and the tag from the tree to Fontenot's.

9Health Fair Wrap-Up
On Saturday, October 5, we had another successful 9Health Family Fair. Our community owes a special debt to John and Deb Erwin for twelve years of managing this important community event! Our wonderful local support makes the 9Health Fair possible every year. Special thanks also to all our Lions Club volunteers, those from East Grand EMS and all our medical professionals. Please click this link
to see John's heartfelt thank-you note. John is retiring from the overall management of the 9Health Fair and we need a replacement. Please think about the importance of the 9Health Fair before dismissing this request. John has agreed to help the new event chair to get up to speed. John's Photos from the event will be available soon on our online photo gallery by clicking here.
