MOUNTAIN — The Mountain Lions would like to thank the over 200 caring individuals who came out to see Freddy Vette and the Flames and dined on fine steak dinner this past weekend.  The event, one of two annual dinner and shows put on by the Lions, was a great success raising well over $5000. All funds raised go directly back into the local community through the many Lions initiatives and directly to families in need.  The Mountain Township and District Lions Club is a very active club with over 30 members and meets on the first and third Thursday of each month at the Agricultural Hall in South Mountain. At the last meeting three members were recognized for having served the community for over 10 years: Lions Rick Lewis, Gary Ruyf and Ted Ceelen. Lion Roxanne Backes, was also congratulated for her outstanding service over her tenure in the Lions Club. Without the dedication and hard work of all Lions members, events like the dinner and show would not be possible. If you would like to see more of what the Mountain Lions are up to please check out our Facebook page. In the coming weeks the Lions will be picking up roadside trash along County Rd. 1 from South Mountain to Hwy 43, and preparations are already underway for this summers Canada Day festivities.  Of course, all of this would be impossible without the support from everyone who attends and sponsors our events. Thank you to all!
