Enjoy a Great Corned Beef Dinner March 12, Support a Great Cause

Delavan Lions Corned Beef Flyer 2017You don’t have to be Irish to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

The Delavan Lion’s Club will once again be serving corned beef and cabbage with all the fixins at its 54th annual St. Patrick’s celebration from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday, March 12, at the Village Supper Club, 1725 South Shore Dr. on Delavan Lake.

Cost for adults is $12 at the door, or $11 in advance available from any Delavan Lions Club member, or at Stinebrink’s Piggly Wiggly, Bradley’s Department Store or at the Village Supper Club. Cost is $6 for children 6 to 12 while those 5 and under eat for free.

Ticket charges include coffee or milk and all of the trimmings — succulent corned beef, sweetly steamed cabbage, baked chicken, Irish potatoes, carrots, horseradish, fresh rye bread and butter. Also, there will be an hourly 50/50 raffle for cash prizes.

Proceeds from this and other Delavan Lions fundraising events go to various charities and other good causes within the Delavan community, and to the Wisconsin Lions Camp in Rosholt, Wis. The camp offers a quality camping experience for eligible children and adults who are blind or visually impaired, those who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, and those with diabetes or educational autism, etc.

A chance remark – “Blind kids can’t go to outdoor camps and stuff like that…” – started it all in 1955. The following year, Lions Clubs in the State of Wisconsin founded the Wisconsin Lions Camp and the Wisconsin Lions Foundation, Inc. to administer the Camp program.

From that humble beginning when it served 26 campers, your Wisconsin Lions Camp now serves more than 1,300 campers each summer.

For more information about the dinner event, or advance tickets, call 262-949-5387.

Lions Donation + Middle School Sewers Help Kids with Cancer

PX_Pillowcases

Seventh graders in the Phoenix Middle School Family and Consumer Education courses taught by Ms. Terri Brown sewed pillow cases for children needing long-term hospital stays.

The Delavan Lions Club made a $200 donation for materials for the project, which will support the organization Ryan’s Case for Smiles (formerly ConKerr Cancer).

The organization works to improve the quality of life of children and their families as they undergo treatment. The cases brighten up the hospital rooms and help reduce the trauma and stress kids can experience while undergoing lengthy treatments.

Way to go sewers! We are #DDCometProud of you for completing this project for the fourth year in a row!
