Winona Noon Lions Picnic

The Winona Noon Lions hosted their annual picnic honoring the staff and clients of the Winona ORC and DAC. Approximately 175 people were served a picnic lunch, consisting of sloppy joes, potato chips, beans, fruit salad, pop and an ice cream treat. The purpose of this annual event is to give thanks for the contributions of these individuals who work in various positions throughout the community. The Noon Lions look forward to this occasion each year, as do the workers of the DAC and ORC. The Lions call this event the DAC/ORC Picnic while the workers call it the Lions Picnic.

Pictured are two very long term Lions: Keith Inman (left) and Bob Doerer (right) who have a combined 90 years of Lion service. The Noon Lions are very proud of their continuous dedication and service. For years they have served pop to the picnic goers and are kept quite busy during the event.
