Vernon Lions participate in the Vernon Winter Carnival Parade
Thousands gathered in downtown Vernon on Saturday morning, Feb 8 for the annual Winter Carnival parade, which is celebrating its 60th Anniverssary. The Vernon Lions entered this 60's theme float in the parade to kick off our 75th Anniversary year celebrations. Lions Jackie, Allan and Judy did a fantastic job chairing the building of the float. We are so proud of the jukebox made by Lion Allan.
A huge thank you goes out to Westwood Electric for allowing us to use their shop to build the float and for loaning us their truck to pull the float in the parade.
