Aberdeen Lions Breakfast

August 11, 2019
Golden Corral, Aberdeen

Aberdeen Lions and guests gathered for our annual breakfast at Golden Corral.  This event brings Lions and their families together for an informal get-together.  No formal meeting!  No Lions business!  Just friends and family eating together.   Also, it's a small way to thank Lion Russ (owner of Golden Corral) for his food contributions to our Spaghetti and Pancake Suppers.   Starting in September 2019, the Aberdeen Lions Club will have their monthly dinner meetings at the Golden Corral.

Dinner Meetings

Charter Night, May 22, 2018  - 86 Years of Service to the Comunity 









As your King of Aluminum Can recycling, I'm happy to announce, that after a few weeks of no-availability, the Aberdeen Lions Club Can Trailer has found a new home!

For almost 15 years, the Shortstop Beverage Barn was home to the "Can Trailer".  Shortstop Beverage Barn owner, Andy Lee, was very gracious to allow the Can Trailer to be parked on his property for those many years. As most of you know, the Shortstop Beverage Barn has closed with the property being sold to the Lidl Grocery Store chain. 
So, the Can Trailer needed a new home; a place of high visibility and easy access.

After an exhaustive search involving dozens of land-use experts, marketing gurus, helicopter photography and even satellite imaging making use of the Hubble Space Telescope and the International Space Station, I'm pleased to announce that the Can Trailer's new home is:

The Railroad Food Park located on W. Bel Air Ave at the foot of Mt. Royal Ave and adjacent to the B & O Railroad Station. Lion Art Helton was very accommodating in allowing the Can Trailer to be placed on his property. Thank you, Lion Art!!

One doesn't just park a Can Trailer on a piece of property and walk away...No!!!  Some site work had to be done and for that, I want to thank Steve Horne and his Crew from Horne Concrete Construction for doing the necessary site prep prior to placing the Can Trailer at its new location. So....the Can Trailer is in place and just waiting for you to fill it with Aluminum Cans!

And just so you date, we have raised $28,480.00 from recycled Aluminum, Steel, Copper, Brass and assorted recyclable items.

100% of that $28,480.00 and all future money goes directly back into the Community for local area scholarships, eye glasses for those that cannot afford them, youth athletic sponsorships, medical loan items and a laundry list of civic endeavors.

See us on FB and soon you can visit our newly revamped website:

(Under Construction) for more information including how to become a member of the Aberdeen Lions Club.

And....look to these same emails for information regarding the re-dedication of the Can Trailer!  September 2017 marks the 15th anniversary of the Aberdeen Lions Club Can Trailer.

Plans are in the works for a gala re-dedication of our beloved Can Trailer! You won't want to miss this event! It's sure to be a hum-dinger!

Thank you all for your past contributions to the Can Trailer and please continue to put Aluminum Cans in the Can Trailer!

King Can, Mark
