Vernon Lions Club holds bottle drive for local food bank
Social distancing protocols were in place at the Fraternal Order of Eagles Hall Saturday

un. 20, 2020 COMMUNITY/VERNON MORNING STAR

The Vernon Lions Club is bringing COVID-19 relief to its local food bank, one bottle at a time.  Volunteers held a bottle drive in the parking lot of the Fraternal Order of Eagles Hall Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon, with all proceeds going to the Vernon food bank.  “We’re hoping to raise as much as we can because everybody’s in need,” said Lions Club member Judy Louis. “It’s been a tough go with all that’s going on out there.”
The volunteers set up cones to direct traffic and ensured that social distancing was maintained as people drove in to drop off their bottles and cans.  “They just drive in, we unload and we do all the sorting,” Louis said.

 

                                                                                                                                                          




A huge thank you goes out to Keith at Chasers Bottle Depot for providing us with supplies to sort the bottles and cans received - Pictured here with Lion Allan.
The Vernon Lions Club raised $1,140 for the Vernon Salvation Army.  The cheque was presented to Laura Richardson by Lions Jackie and Judy.    Many thanks to all who supported this very worthwhile cause.

Saturday, May 9 our ingenious Tail Twister hosted the
2020 Vernon Lions Virual Duck Race

at 3 PM on Meakin's Creek, which flows through said Tail Twister's yard.  This could be the major event of the year and was exciting and amazing.  Each club member had a duck with their name on the bottom - totally impartial.  AND the winner was Karen Whittle.

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.
