Millersport Lions helping Ohio State School for Blind Band

Editor:

Help send the Ohio State School for the Blind Marching Band to the 2010 Tournament of Roses Parade. The O.S.S.B. has received an invitation to participate in the parade on 01/01/10. This is a very big honor for any band, but is especially significant in this case since the O.S.S.B. has the only marching band in the country made up of BLIND band members.

The Ohio Lions Foundation has taken up the challenge of raising the necessary funds to send this special group of kids to Pasadena and Lions Clubs all around Ohio are holding fund raisers to help meet the $80,000 goal.

The Millersport Lions Club is hosting two fund raisers in the month of April to help do our part and you can help by supporting our efforts. Both events will be held at the Millersport Lions Club House on Chautauqua Blvd in Millersport.

We will be holding a Breakfast with the Easter Bunny on Saturday, April 4th from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. Children will be able to have their pictures taken with the Easter Bunny in a variety of sizes, starting at $3.00 per photo. The cost for the breakfast is $5.00 for Adults and children ages 11 and over, $2.00 ages 2-10, and under age 2 eat Free. So come out for a great breakfast featuring pancakes, eggs, sausage and sausage gravy, and help support this worthwhile cause. Sausage and Gravy graciously provided by Bowers and Sons Meats.

Our second fund raiser will be our Pasadena Pasta Dinner and Silent Auction on Sunday, April 19th from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. We will be offering a nice menu of spaghetti, salad, garlic bread, desert and a variety of drinks will be available. The cost for the dinner will be: Adults and Children over age 8- $7.00, Children age 2 to 7-$5.00 and children under age 2 eat Free.

We still need items for the silent auction, so if you would like to make a donation of a new or gently used item for the auction or if you have any questions about either event, please feel free to contact Lion Rondia Sexton at 740-405-9871.
