The Parkers Prairie Lions Club will celebrate their 50th anniversary Saturday, Oct. 5, beginning with a social hour at 5 p.m. Supper will be served at 6 p.m. and the Heart O’ Lakes Harmony Men’s Chorus will provide the entertainment following the meal.

The event will be at the Prairie Event Center in Parkers Prairie.

The Heart O’ Lakes Harmony Men’s Chorus is an a capella chorus of 40 voices strong that has been popular in this area for many years.

They will be singing favorites like “Ain’t Misbehavin’” and “It Had To Be You” from the prohibition era; “Piano Roll Blues” and “Tin Roof Café” from the deep south and beloved religious classics that are always an inspiration.

The chorus presents a tight, lively, four part harmony guaranteed to get your toes tapping and your hands clapping.

The Chorus is famous for its recent presentation of “Happy Days’ Reunion,” with the Fonz, Richie Cunningham and others from the popular TV series.

It was also celebrated for its “Honky Tonk Harmony,” last year with large, appreciative audiences in both Detroit Lakes and Fergus Falls.
