Lions Bench Donated by Generous Family

In 2023, the Vienna Arts Society held a “Take a Seat Vienna” auction selling forty benches.  All benches were made by Vienna resident Ralph Reinecke, and painted by several Vienna Arts Society artists.  One featured artist was Lion Joyce Myers (now a Fairfax Lion) who paints a Lions Bench. 

On May 14, 2024, the Bernhard family – who purchased the Lions Bench – donated it to the Fairfax Lions Club (former members of Vienna Lions Club have merged into Fairfax Lions Club), and placed it in front of Fosters Grille in Vienna.
