To coincide with Rhythm Remix, the Fort Atkinson Lions club will be grilling brats, frying cheese curds, and selling assorted beverages, and snacks at the Lorman Bicentennial Park, 210 South Water Street West, on the Rock River near the Robert Street bridge. The concession stand will be open on Saturday, August 27th from 10 am to 6 pm. Come enjoy a meal and listen to live music from the Jason Thomas Band, which starts at 12 noon.
Fort Atkinson Lions can be found donating their time to these events. Stop by at Rhythm Remix and learn more about the 92-year old civic organization, the second-oldest Lions Club in southeastern Wisconsin.
Lions have also been busy selling food concessions at Ralph Park, a fundraiser they have held for years. The club sells an assortment of refreshments and food on three nights from May until July. A new Lions Club sign now graces the concession building to remind attendees of the club’s commitment to the community.
The club also sold concession at two local events, the Junior Blackhawk Baseball tournament in July and the Fort Atkinson Senior Center’s outing at Ralph Park in August.
Funds raised go to local projects. Last year we supported Big Brothers and Big Sisters, BOLD, BASE, Christmas Neighbors, Friends of the Library, Lady Blackhawks, Piecemaker’s Quilted Guild, Rock River Community Clinic and the Summer Reading program. Funds were also distributed for state Lions projects like Lions Camp and Leader Dog (training canines to assist the visually impaired).
The Fort Atkinson Lions Club meetings will resume in September and those interested in joining are welcome to attend. Contact Membership Chair Kevin Becker at 920-650-8005 with questions. You can also learn more from our website at www.eclubhouse.org/sites/fortatkinson, or our Facebook page
