PUNKINMANIA

The Wildwood Lions Club is proud to announce that our 2020 PunkinMania, held October 10th under pandemic conditions, was a huge community success. Our fundraising event greatly exceeded expectations for attendance and funds raised.  Thank you for the participation by members of Mahtomedi Youth Hockey, the Mahtomedi Girl Scout Troop, the Fire Department and the Schifski family, without whose land and farming expertise would this be possible.   COVID 19 safety protocols were in place and the School District Center graciously provided a safe way to preserve the event during trying times. Thank you to all!

We are also selling many pumpkins each day while they last at the location where we grew them. More information can be found on Craig's list at https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/wsh/grd/d/pumpkins-and-gourds-for-sale/7199945827.html.

Our PunkinMania started in 1987. We will begin planning for the next PunkinMania, tentatively to be held on October 9, 2021.

WILDWOOD LIONS CLUB SUPPORTS COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS

Below is one reason we are proud to be Lions.

The following is part of a message received from Shane Hoefer, Senior Director of Major Giving | Mission Advancement of the YMCA of White Bear Lake.

“We are incredibly grateful for major donors like the Wildwood Lions Club

The Y has committed to helping people through the many challenges of the pandemic:

          At White Bear Y alone, from the start of the pandemic shut down through Labor Day, we will have distributed 45,000 meals during the noon hour distribution

          At White Bear, our teams gave wellness check calls to 2,000 local seniors who are connected to the Y, each one receiving 4 calls in the early months of extreme social isolation and uncertainty

          We overhauled the Neighborhood Centers, Y programs working inside affordable housing communities, to provide food, household supplies, support for distance learning, and help for parents to navigate unemployment

          We reopened on June 22, welcoming back about 30% of our members.

Despite the direct challenges to our own business, we’ve done everything we could to help people in meaningful, life-giving ways. None of this would be possible were it not for our donors like the Wildwood Lions. We need all of you to know how grateful we are. Thank you ….”

Welcome Back Lions

          

On August 24th, Forster's Dugout, our new meeting location, now allows for the Lion's to select a menu item of their choice, including prime rib melts, chopped salads and Guinness beef sandwiches to name a few. Forster's Dugout went out of their way to make sure all COVID 19 protocols were in place and created a safe and productive meeting spot for our dinner meetings. 

With in-person meetings, we restated our popular cash prize drawings for attendance and progressive jackpot, join us in September to participate! 

The Lions group in attendance on August 24th was treated with a
