Crosslake Ideal Lions finally had their first face-to-face meeting, in 2021, this month at Maucieri’s coupled with ZOOM accessibility. There was a good turnout and many new events and activities are being planned. First and foremost, Jeremy Knippel, was elected as the new Crosslake Ideal Lion’s President. New Board members will be voted in next month.
A new event will replace the annual Easter Egg Hunt and has expanded into an EGGstravaganza! The Easter egg hunt will be replaced by a combined hunt plus games and activities. There will also be a drive-through only option for families wishing to remain COVID safe. This event will be held at the Crosslake Ideal Lion’s picnic shelter, in Crosslake, Saturday April 3rd, 2021 starting at 10am. Hope to see you all there!
Crosslake Ideal Lions are always looking for ways to provide service to our community. Recently donations have been made to the Crosslake/Ideal Scholarship Fund, Bridges of Hope, Crosslake Food Shelf, and the Crosslake School Trap Team.
A new, upcoming activity will be initiating a Diaper Drive (both adult and infant), we will be asking the community to donate to this effort. They will be collected at local drop off sites (TBD), and donated to local homeless shelters, women’s shelters, schools, and food shelf’s. More specific information will be published early April.
Music in the Park will resume again this year and pending State approval, the Annual Fishing Tournament will occur this summer.
