LYNDON -- Lyndon Lions Club will be assisting with the Denise's Luminaries Tour, opening this Saturday, October 22nd at Pomona State Park.
For the third year, the Lyndon Lions will work the gate at Pomona State Park the next two Saturdays, October 22nd and 29th. The Lions will be collecting can goods, non-perishables and/or donations which will go to Help House in Lyndon. Pomona State Park is allowing the Lions to collect the donations in place of the normal charge for park entry.
This the the third year for the Luminaries and there are nine new luminaries in the tour. There is a total of approximately 60 luminaries which are lighted Halloween displays. These are set up in the Kansa Campground area. The tour is fun for kids of all ages and can be done entirely in your vehicle. Last year there were private vehicles, buses and even some walkers who enjoyed the tour.
The Lyndon Lions club members will be assisting at the gate both Saturdays from 5 to 8 pm.
This is one of the many projects the Lions provide each year that help out local charities, the schools and the youth and many others in the area. Lions Club International is the world's largest service organization and in addition to local projects the Lyndon Lions club participates in many world wide projects which include collection of eye glasses, the Youth Peace Poster Contest and many others. For more information on this project or how you can help through the Lions club please contact Lyndon Lions President William Karr at 785-828-3126.
Come out and enjoy the fun of the Luminaries Tour and bring the kids and grandparents!
