The proceeds will be distributed as such: $1,000 to Coffee Oasis; $7,000 to Fishline Food Bank; $7,000 to St. Vincent's of Poulsbo; and $7,000 to Sharenet in Kingston. These organizations disburse the funds as needed on a one-time-only basis for help with anything from a utility bill to a tank of gas, help with rent, etc.

A hankie, really?

After a recent story about a waiter in Cabo finding what he thought was women's underwear (Jay Dahlquist, our treasurer, says it was his handkerchief), Roger Sherrard bought Jay a new hankie from Victoria's secret! Who says Lions don't have fun?
