Lions thank you

To the editor:

The Greater Pine Island Lions Club participated in the 1st Annual Home Town Carney on Saturday, Nov. 19, at the Winn-Dixie Parking Lot, North Lot, in the grass. It was held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and a good time was had by all. We had many people come out and participate. We gave out all of our "stuffed animals" (but three), many necklaces, all of the bubbles, some shirts and who knows what else. The children were wonderful and they sure liked picking out their stuffed animals.

Thank everyone who had a part in getting this together for the community and we hope it can happen again next year. We had hoped to earn enough to buy an awning so we wouldn't have to continue borrowing one, but we didn't. But maybe we can work out something else before next year.

Thanks to all of the parents and children who came. Thanks to all of the Lions who could make it out to help! A good time was had by all.

And thanks especially to Wayne Reed who got this rolling and kept on top of it the whole way! Good job Wayne! We will be back next year if you get this together again!

Thanks to Harry Halvorson for taking the picture.

Mary Von Burg, president
