 Marklund Run Walk and Roll 

Several Lions members participated in the Marklund Run, Walk and Roll on Sunday, April 28th to support Marklund School.  Marklund provides services to profoundly disabled individuals.


 Easter Egg Hunts 

Thanks to the 18 individuals that made this years hunt a success .We had a large turn out and it was over in 45 sec.  The special needs went off ok for the first year.  A few individuals showed up but were so happy to have the opportunity to hunt for eggs.  They loved the toys in the eggs.  The club purchased 4000 eggs and enough candy and toys to fill them. A special thanks to Lions Stan, Karen, Bob, Kevin, Jo, Rayleen and the parkdistrict. Thanks to Pan American Bank who donated $500 and Meijers Food for $200.  One other person I would like to point out is Tori, the young lady who wore the Lion Suit, she is the friend of Lion Karen.




 Best of Bloomingdale 

At the Bloomingdale Chamber Awards ceremony on March 7th, our club was presented with the Best of Bloomingdale award in the non-profit category for 2019.  This is an award that goes out to our members as a club.  It reflects the Bloomingdale community's recognition of our hard work and dedication of our members in helping others. Congratulation Lion members.  


  Spaghetti Dinner 2019   

This year's spaghetti dinner was a huge success in spite of the frigid cold temperatures!  We had 208 people attend and help raise some much needed funds.  Tony Spavone entertained patrons with his classic repotiore of songs.  Thank you, Tony!  The raffle prizes were a huge success.  Thank you to all who donated prizes and/or bought tickets.  As always, the food was fabulous.  Thank you to the Bloomingdale Golf Club for hosting the event.  Great job, Lion Karen V. on coordinating this event. 



 Ski for Sight 2019

Once again, the Bloomingdale Lions helped at ski for site in Shabbona Lake State Park. We had five Lions helpers, Camille, Karen Joan, Sam and Stan. It was a cold day, but we are all dressed warmly and there was plenty of snow, so the skiers had a good time. One skier told me that this is the only time that they can get out of the house in the winter. They really appreciate the event and the Lions for hosting.


 Toys for Tots 

27,000 DuPage Children received Christmas gifts that may not have if it weren’t for the combined efforts of the “Marines toys for tots program ” with the help of community organizations such as the Lions. Thank you.
