Vernon Lions Trail Care...
For some years now, members of the Vernon Lions Club have been cleaning up the Grey Canal Trail in the spring and fall for the pleasure of those frequenting this local walking trail.
The City of Vernon has recognized our "adoption" of the trail with plaques on entrance sign posts. Thanks to the city, and thanks also to the users of this beautiful area for helping us to keep it free of debris for everyone's enjoyment!
Vernon Lions Spread Some Cheer...
Members of the Vernon Lions Club wish to thank all of YOU who so generously supported the spring Bay Giving Day Fundraiser.
Our club, with the help of our Zone neighbours the Enderby Lions Club, raised $2,570.00 towards the construction of a new Clubhouse on the premises of Vernon's North Okanagan Neurological Association. Among other childhood neurological disorders, NONA provides support to youth with the various levels of the spectrum of autism. Pictured above (left to right) are Vernon Lion President Patrick Rutten, Janice Foster - Board Chair of NONA, Dave Carson, Mike Smith, Event Chair Lion Jackie Tardell, Rose Carson, Ralph Whittle, Enderby Lion Elmer Halvorson, and Vernon Lion Treasurer Lorne Elward.
The Vernon Lions also recently donated funds to the Family Resource Centre, the Vernon Parkinson Support Group, Kindale Development Association, the Vernon MS Support Group, the North Okanagan Hospice Society, Vernon Search and Rescue and the Upper Room Mission.
The Vernon Lions held their Annual Members' Picnic at Coldstream Park in the Vernon area. Pictured below are members in attendance with guests, relaxing and enjoying another beautiful Okanagan summer day.

Our current masthead photo shows a Red Oak tree in its autumn colours. This slow growing tree is not common in the Okanagan, but its fall beauty is worth the effort of cultivating it.
