T-shirt money and vision screening by Evening Pride

During May, Evening Pride Branch Club gave $250 to the Boys and Girls Club for the purchase of T-shirts for Summer Camp.
The branch club also provided 49 hours of community service and assisted with Vision Screening at Viking Fest during the pancake breakfast. Seven Lions screened 54 children and made five referrals to vision specialists.

2017 pancake breakfast raises more than $4,400 for scholarships

Kent Lord, our club president, stamps a lion on a woman to show she's paid. Also at the table, Neil Torvik (handing out stamps) and Jay Dahlquist (taking money).

Our 2017 Viking Fest Pancake Breakfast attracted around 1,000 people, bringing in $4,429.95 over our costs. We had a $1,000 donation as well as $3,000 given from the Poulsbo Lions Raab Foundation for a total of $8,400 toward area scholarships.

Many thanks to those who supported our breakfast, as well as our various Leo students. You're the best!
