Dear fellow Hanover Lions,
As most of you know, last Saturday the Hanover Lions manned the Prouty BBQ tent for the 31st year in a row, and a few weeks prior to that, on Saturday, June 23, we sponsored the 20th annual Twin State All-Star Lacrosse Games (20th for boys, 17th for girls), something we’ve done almost every year since 1996 (one year interrupted in 1997, when the games were held in Middlebury, VT). Barbequing at The Prouty is a service we provide to help make the event a tremendous fund-raiser for the Norris Cotton Cancer Center, while sponsorship of the All-Star Games is a service we provide to both honor the senior all-star lacrosse athletes of Vermont and New Hampshire, and generate income for our charitable fund. Both events require considerable time and effort commitments from our group, but they are both well worth it, and, are events we enjoy participating in. We should also be proud that we provide these services to the Hanover and greater VT-NH communities. I would like to thank all the Lions that participated in both of these events; they were great fun, and I enjoyed working with everyone in the group.
This proceeds from this year's auction help support the many Lions projects in the Upper Valley.
The Hanover Lions Club has dinner meetings on the third Thursday of every month from September through June at 6 p.m. at Jesse's Restaurant. We also have a holiday party in December and a summer picnic in June. In addition, we volunteer for various community and fundraising events during the year. See the Calendar Page for more information.
