On October 1, the Land O' Lakes Lions Club presented a cheque to the Land O' Lakes Community Food Bank in the amount of $2,000. On the left is Lion Pam Lemke, in the centre Lion Red Emond, and missing from the picture Lion Phil Barchard, who were instrumental in raising this money by holding the 1st Annual Fun Golf Tournament, held at Hunters Creek Golf Club. Receiving the cheque is Betty Pearce. The Lions hope to make this event an annual affair and many people are already asking for a spot for next year. The local food bank has had an abundance of calls for help this year and with more money going out than coming in, the LOL Lions helped fill the void.
