Britton Lions Club to build Picnic Shelter for Centennial Legacy Project


For nearly 100 years, Lions have served their communities with dedication and contributed to the development and well-being of millions of people around the world. To celebrate our 100th anniversary, Lions Clubs International is asking Lions to help reach their Centennial Service Challenge goal of serving more than 100 million people by June 2018.

Plans started small, but dreams were big as Lions Tim Jacobsen and Tom Farber worked with the lumberyard in Britton to develop their idea of building a picnic shelter in the park south of the swimming pool. They took their plans to the city, which promptly gave the go-ahead and the promise of additional funding, and their dream began to take flight. 

The proposed Britton Lions Club Pavilion will be 32' x 40' and include a concrete slab, recessed can lighting and electrical outlets. The cedar ceiling will be enclosed to prevent birds from nesting.
