Schroon Lake A community tradition will again help the Town of Schroon Lions Club provide charitable services.
The Lions annual prime rib dinner will be held Saturday, Oct. 20, at Witherbee’s Carriage House Restaurant, Route 9 in Schroon Lake. Guests will be seated continually as tables arrive, beginning at 5 p.m. until approximately 8 p.m. Lions suggest wait times may be shorter during the later half of the evening.
“The Lions Club is a total service group, with 100 percent of all proceeds going back into our Schroon Lake community projects,” Lion Patti Mehm said. “Please join us on Oct. 20 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.”
The dinner will include salad, rolls and butter, prime rib, green beans, homemade mashed potatoes and a dessert.
The donation for advanced ticket purchases is $20 and $22 at the door. Gratuity is included in the price. Tickets can be obtained from any Schroon Lake Lions Club member, at Friedman Realty and at The Towne Store. People can also call club secretary Bette Manley at 532-7577 for advance tickets.
“The community’s support is greatly appreciated and necessary for its success,” Mehm said. “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.”
Tickets for the Schroon Lake Lions Club Ice Out event will also be available during the prime rib dinner event.
Lions support many projects in the Schroon Lake community. The Lions help provide eyeglasses, hearing aids and lifelines; offer college and camp scholarships; provide transportation for cancer patients for treatments; provide holiday food baskets and emergency funds to the needy; support local troops in Iraq and Afghanistan; and donate funds to local events such as the Fourth of July parade and library reading program.
The Town of Schroon Lions Club meets the third Monday of each month at Decesare’s Pizza at 6:30 p.m. The meetings are open to the public. Anyone planning to attend for dinner should call 532-7577.
