Some of our Upcoming Activities will be:

 

2021 Annual Citrus Fruit Sale

This is our primary fundraiser.  We bring up the freshest "Grove Stand" quality Citrus Fruit Available.  This year's Sale is now in the planning stages.  The types of fruit, sizes and prices have not yet been set by our suppliers, as the crops are still on the trees and not ripe for the pickers.  What we can tell you, is that we will be holding the sale, Friday, through Sunday, December 3rd through the 5th, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM daily while supplies last.  Our location will be at our usual site, in front of the Chick-fil-A and Lowes at the Dulles Crossings Shopping Center.   45440 Dulles Crossing Plz, Sterling, VA 20166)

Since none of the following has yet to be confirmed, we hope to be bringing up Navels, Grapefruit, Tangelos and Clemintines provided the quality of the fruit is as good as in the past.  We are counting on using one of "My Guys Moving and Storage" vans as our sale headquarters, but this is all still up in the planning stages.

We thank everyone who purchased our Navel Oranges, Ruby Red Grapefruit and Clenentines in the past, and look forward to their continued support.  You helped make this fundraiser a great success.

Bland Music Scholarship Competition

 For the past 73 years, the Lions of Virginia have been sponsoring a statewide Music Scholarship program known as the Lions of Virginia Music Scholarship Competition in Honor of James Bland.  It is more commonly known in the field of music education as the annual Lion’s Bland Contest.   It is a progressive contest, where gifted music students compete against each other at a local (or club) level, with the winners moving up to the Region, District and then to the State Finals.   

The Sterling Lions Club 2022 Contest will be held on February 5, 2022.  The Contest will start at 1:00 PM, with Contestants checking in between Noon and 12:30 PM.  The Location will be once again in the Santuary of the Community Lutheran Church located at 21014 Whitfield Place, Sterling, VA  20165.  Due to the current COVID-19 Pandemic, we ask all participants and guests to wear an appropriate face covering, when not actively performing.  This is requested for the safety of our Contestants, Volunteer Members and Judges.  It should be noted that we will do everything in our power to hold this contest in a safe manner, but will also follow any and all other mandated COVID-19 protocols that may be disiminated by State and Local officials as well as our Lions District and International Leadership.         
 
When the Contest is held, there will be two categories being judged: Instrumental and Vocal.  The contest is open to any Virginia boy or girl that is musically gifted, and is enrolled in Elementary through High School, or being Home Schooled at those levels.  There is no cost to compete.  The general public, family and friends are invited to watch the performance on February 5, 2022.  There is no admission fee to attend.
