Minnesota State Fair Fundraiser:  late August through Labor Day:

Proceeds go into our Administrative Account:

Lions District 5M6 has an agreement with the Minnesota State Fair to provide volunteers for the Ticket Booths at the Kid Way Amusement Park and one Ticket Booth at the Mid Way Amusement Park. During the 12 days at the Minneota State Fair, Lions volunteer as Day Captains.  They find Lions or other volunters to work the morning or afternoon shift for their day.  Volunteers put in 7 hours during their shift.  The State Fair pays the 5M6 District $9.00 per hour for each volunteer working. This is a fundraiser for Lions District 5M6.  The district pay clubs $7.75 for each hour their volunteers worked at the Ticket Booths.  The State Fair provides a free admission ticket to the fair.  It is a good way to work at a ticket booth and then walk around the fair on their off shift.  It is a fun way to watch children and parents at the amusement parks.
