Hunting Easter Eggs       

 

TO DO ALL OF THIS WE RAISE MONEY BY

Selling chicken corn soup.  Soup sale will be held at the West Pennsboro Fire Hall in October 2024.

Selling ham and cheese or turkey and cheese sandwiches in February and May 2024.

We have brooms for sale.

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HELPED THIS YEAR BY PUTTING INTO ACTION THE LIONS MOTTO:    WE SERVE!

EASTER EGG HUNT

The Plainfield Lions Club will again sponsor the annual Easter egg hunt at West Pennsboro Park for the children in the community on Saturday, March 23, 2024, (Rain/snow date is March 30, 2024) starting at 11:00 am.    The Plainfield Lions Club has been the sponsor of the community's Easter Egg hunt for over 30 years.

CHICKEN CORN SOUP

Every year the Plainfield Lions Club sells our delicious chicken corn soup.  In past years we would make the soup in huge black kettles.  Unfortunately, in the past couple of years we have had problems, first with the condition of the corn that was grown and then the COVID pandemic.  We now purchase the soup from the Country Butcher Shop and sell it in that manner.   Look for our soup sale in October 2024.

WESTERN CUMBERLAND COUNTY (WCC) LION PROJECTS 

The Plainfield Lions Club are part of the Western Cumberland County (WCC) Lions that work on large-scale projects in the Carlisle area.  Plainfield Lions supplied the leadership of Peck and Jill Freeland, who have graciously opened their home for fund raising meetings during the past year.  Plans include a golf tournament at Eagles Crossing on June 22, 2024 and a bake sale at the Country Butcher Shop in Plainfield on Saturday, August 31, 2024 during the Labor Day weekend.

Contact Lion Acting Secretary Charlie Holtry for information or to place an order for any of these fund raising efforts.
