West Hagerstown Lions Club to mark 28th Charter Night

On Monday, June 2, all Lions Club members are invited to the club's 28th Charter Night at Washington Square Methodist Church.

The event will feature a country-western theme, and all attendees are encouraged to dress the part. Social hour begins at 6 p.m. Tickets cost $14. Call Donna Jackman at 301-790-2036 for more information.

On May 17, the West Hagerstown Lions Club served breakfast to the Wagon Train. Pancakes, puddin', sausage, orange juice and coffee was served.

The Lions Club serves the community throughout the year providing food and beverages at different events around the community.

With sadness, it was announced that the Lions Clubs will be losing a significant fundraising event. The Viking/Bulldog Roundup will no longer be held.

The roundup will be missed for many reasons; let us come together as a community to continue to support the local Lions Clubs so they might continue to provide services near and far.
