Fairfax Lions had a successful fund raiser food sale at the Fairfax Fall Festival, Saturday Oct 11. ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE SALES GO DIRECTLY BACK INTO OUR COMMUNITY TO SUPPORT THOSE IN NEED. We had a fun time, and enjoyed meeting our many customers.
We sold Beer, Wine, Soda, Brats, Dogs, Sauerkraut, Chips — all at good prices. The weather was rainy all morning, but cleared in the afternoon. We did not have the crowds we usually see on a bright sunny day – BUT WE APPRECIATE ALL THOSE WHO STOPPED BY AND MADE A PURCHASE.
A SPECIAL APPRECIATION: As the Fall Festival was closing down a man asked about Lions’ service projects. We mentioned the Fairfax Lions will buy 30 pairs of eyeglasses for the needy this year, at a cost of $50 each. That man reached into his pocket, gave us a $50 bill, and said, “Make that 31 pairs of eyeglasses.” That donation is in addition others our customers graciously contributed. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
