From local Lions leaders …
On behalf of the South Milwaukee Lions Club Foundation and the South Milwaukee Lions Club, we would like to thank the Community for making another very successful Lions Fest. It was a great weekend for South Milwaukee. Both the Heritage Days Parade and the South Milwaukee Lions Fest make it a special weekend. Although the two events are run by two completely different groups of volunteers they combine to make the Weekend Special for South Milwaukee.
Because of your generosity the Lions can continue to do what they have done since 1937 in South Milwaukee. Last year the South Milwaukee Lions were able to donate over $30,000. They give for many different causes from Scholarships here at home, to Lions Camp where kids and adults with disabilities, such as sight, hearing loss and diabetes can enjoy a week of fun, to recycling eyeglasses to the really poor throughout the world. Last year the South Milwaukee Lions Club collected over 4,000 pair of glasses.
We need to acknowledge the many volunteers, both Lions and non-Lions for without their help this events would not happen.
Plan for next year, July 28, 29,and 30th, to wrap up Heritage week with another great Parade and Festival.
Thanks again South Milwaukee.
