Lions Mints: Trays containing rolls of yummy Lions mints are placed at several area establishments. People can help themselves and pay on the honor system. We have mint trays at the following locations: Benson Corners Antiques and Annex; Remember This Antiques; Piccadilly Antiques; Southport and Community Banks in Paddock Lake; Peoples Bank in Silver Lake; Bank of the Lakes Bank in Kenosha; Westosha Senior Center in Bristol; Bumper to Bumper on Hwy. 50; Edenhofer Law office in Paddock Lake; and the Panda Restaurant in Kenosha.
Flower Sale: Each spring we take orders for roses and other flowers which will be delivered on Administrative Professionals Day. We cover all of Kenosha County and southern Racine County. We deliver flowers, from the club, to many area nursing and assisted-living facilities, also.
Poker Run: For the last several years, we have sponsored this event in which persons riding motorcycles (or other vehicles) travel to 5 locations collecting one playing card at each place. At the culmination, a meal is provided for the participants, and the best poker hands win prizes. A raffle is usually included, also.
Spaghetti Dinner: We sponsor this meal during the fall season. We usually team up with another organization or special need and then donate a percentage of the profit to that group.
Culver’s Night: During one of the summer months, we have a night designated at the Culver’s Restaurant in Pleasant Prairie as supporting our Lions club. We receive a percentage of the profits during that designated time.
Books and More Rummage Sale: In December, we sponsor an indoor rummage sale which features having many books for sale, plus other items, of course. We don’t sell clothes, however.
“Candy” Days: For this event, we stand at the entrance of some stores and proudly inform the public about our wonderful Lions organization and all the good things that Lions do. We also distribute Lions mints to anyone who wishes to have them.
