Bailey Brandner is the recipient of the Club’s technical school scholarship for 2017.  Bailey will attend Madison Area Technical College this fall majoring in criminal justice.  His goal is to be a law enforcement officer with the DNR.  Bailey says that “attaining this degree will achieve my career goals and I hope to make a difference in the community that I will serve”.  


Madelyn Chapman was selected to receive the 2017 college scholarship offered by the Club.  Madelyn will attend Lyman Briggs College at Michigan State University majoring in human biology.  This is a pre-med program with her goal to specialize in gerontology since “providing quality of life to the elderly means the world to me”.  

Best Wishes to Madelyn and Bailey!

Relieving the Hunger
The Pardeeville Lions Club responds to this Centennial Service Challenge each month in a significant way by assisting local hunger-relief charities.  The Club volunteers at the Wyocena Community Helping Hands Pantry and the mobile pantry of Second Harvest of Southern Wisconsin that stops in Pardeeville.  Lion Mary Jasin coordinates volunteers for the food pantry throughout the month where members unload the delivery truck, stock shelves, collect donated food at area restaurants and stores, and provide staff at times when the pantry is open.  The Club also makes a significant financial contribution to the food pantry each year.

Lion Laurie Knitt coordinates Second Harvest not only for the Club but the day’s distribution itself and Lion Terry Miller communicates the need for volunteers each month where 20% - 25% of the membership usually shows up to help with the food distribution brought in by semi.  The distribution takes place the 4th Monday of each month outside regardless of the time of the year and weather conditions.  Over 100 families pass through the food line each month.

The families express gratitude for the assistance and we are grateful to be able to assist the charities in this effort.

Ramp Built for Elderly Person In Pardeeville - June 4, 2015
Lion Doug Hare engineered and led the project with assistance in building it from Lions Jerry Lueck, Don Spence, and Jim Helmueller.  All of the materials were donated by Lions Doug Hare and Terry Miller. The person appreciated what the Club did for her in making her home accessible. Throughout the day, she kept on "eye" on the workers just to make sure it was done right!  A wonderful gift for a grateful and gracious lady.



Garage Sale and Brat Sale May 21 - 23, 2015
