Lions appreciate community support of bingo at the fair [UPDATED]Published 9:49am Wednesday, August 14, 2013 Updated 11:54am Wednesday, August 14, 2013
The Elizabeth Lions recently hosted bingo at the West Otter Tail County Fair. All funds raised from the four-day event are used to support Lion’s projects. Some of these projects include diabetes screening; eye screening for macular degeneration and other eye-related diseases; Can Do Canines, which trains dogs to assist with diabetes sugar changes, autism, hearing impairment, blindness, paralysis, etc.; Kamp KACE (Kids Against Cancer Everywhere); and Project New Hope, a camp for our returning combat vets. We also fund local projects as needed.
Our project was a success thanks to the donations and assistance from area businesses. The following businesses contributed prizes and/or gift certificates, which greatly assisted in the success of our bingo project: Fergus Locker, Pizza Hut, Service Food, Falls Baking Co., Debbie’s Kitchen, The Market, Fergus Fast Lane, American National Bank, Productive Alternatives, State Bank and Trust, Ringdahl Ambulance, AG credit, NAPA, Bank of the West, Hedahls, Radio Shack, Nelson Ford, Otter Tail Power, Family Diner, 20/20 Optical, New Beginnings, Pebble Lake Take 5, Taco Johns, Applebee’s, KFC, Elizabeth Liquor Store, Quality Toyota, Pebble Lake Auto Repair, Pine Plaza, Ziegler Caterpillar, JK Sports, YMCA, Primp, Cooper’s Technology Group, RDO, Cullens, Sunmart, American Federal Bank, Lakeway Market, Proximity Controls, Dairy Queen, Papa Murphy’s, Perkins, Minnesota Motors, Victor Lundeen’s, Premier Meats, Frontier Marine and Sports, Minnesota Warehouse, InVision, Security State Bank, Herberger’s, Coca-Cola, Nature’s Garden World, Titan Machinery, GNC, Village Cooperative, US Bank, 3 Guys Deli, Westridge Cinema and Gate City Bank.
