Wow what a day! Callander’s recent family fun day was a huge success. The town held the celebration with many vendors and attractions, including the Callander Lions. The Lions operated a food both selling french fries, hot dogs and ice cold drinks. On the day of the event, the temperature hovered around 37 degrees celcius (for those of you that don’t know how hot that is, try 98 degrees Fahrenheit). The volunteer Lions worked in this heat over fryer and grills to raise money to help out in their community. Lion Claire handled the fryer, Lion Debbra and Gail served the food, Lion Julie (from Capreol) handled the grill and Lions Brenda and Linda (of Coniston) handled taking the orders and money. We sold out of fries and many drinks before the afternoon was over.
As special thanks to Lion Julie and Lion Lynda for coming out to help out the small club in order to run this event.
Callander Lions held a 50/50 draw recently. This was so successful that they are planning on having more of these draws in the future. The winner of the draw for $500.00 is Rosalie Torcotte of Callander. Congratulations to our winner. Don’t spend it all in one place.
