Schroon Lake Lions Club President David Harder greets the new club mascot who was escorted to town by Lion Roger Friedman. The lion will attend the Town of Schroon Lions Club annual prime rib dinner Saturday, Oct. 22, at Witherbee’s Carriage House Restaurant.
Maybe it’s the thought of a prime rib dinner that’s attracting a special guest to the annual Town of Schroon Lions Club dinner.
This year’s dinner will be attended by the club’s new mascot — the Schroon Lake Lion.
The Town of Schroon Lions Club will host its annual prime rib dinner Saturday, Oct. 22, at Witherbee’s Carriage House Restaurant, Route 9 in Schroon Lake. Guests will be seated continually as tabled are available 5 to 8 p.m. The dinner includes salad, rolls and butter, prime rib, green beans, homemade mashed potatoes and a dessert.
The donation for advanced ticket purchases is $20 or $22 (gratuity included) at the door. Tickets can be obtained from any Schroon Lake Lions Club member, at Friedman Realty and The Towne Store. People can also call club secretary Bette Manley, at 532-7577 for advance tickets.
“I am so pleased to have our mascot arrive in time to ‘work’ our next big event – our annual prime rib dinner,” David Harder, club president, said.
DeeDee Cheviron is also pleased to have the Schroon Lake Lion on hand. Names for the Lion will be solicited during the dinner, she said.
“It’s very exciting to have our mascot make his debut, so we thought it would be a great opportunity to have the community involved in giving him a name,” Cheviron said.
The annual dinner is a major fund raising event for the Lions.
“The community’s support is greatly appreciated and necessary for success,” said Patti Mehm of the Lions. “We hope to serve many of our neighbors again this year. The Lions Club motto is ‘We Serve’ and the club members enjoy this opportunity once a year to do just that.”
The Lions Club is a service group, with 100 percent of all proceeds going back into community projects.
“Please join us on Oct. 22 as we serve you and together we can help the community with all dinner proceeds supporting the holiday food basket program, as well as providing scholarships to our local students and Lifelines to our elderly,” Mehm said.
Tickets for the Schroon Lake Lions Club Ice Out event will also be available during the prime rib dinner event.
