Lions Hall

What We Do 

The Lions raise money, in essence, to give to those in need.  Over the years that has been done by selling light bulbs, fruit, cheese and mints, hosting dances, texas holdem, breakfasts and dinners.  The Club owned and operated a food wagon. They held snowmobile races, brought the Culpepper and Merriweather Circus to town, and found many other ways to raise money.
