Lions Hold First Summer BBQ
The Stanley Lions Club held their first summer Burgers in the Park on Monday, June 13. A good crowd turned out for the first one of the year in Wilson Park despite what looked like inclement weather.
The proceeds of $1,566 from the first barbecue were donated to the Stanley Park District for the new outdoor pool project. BBH Insurance sponsored the food for this first event which allowed the Lions Club to increase the donation. Border States Electric also donated the use of their grill for the event.
Additional barbecues will be held on the second Monday of July and August. Each of those will benefit other entities. The Stanley Lions Club does not meet during the summer months, so the Burgers in the Park gives them and the entire community an opportunity to get together for a good cause.
