One of the fun items on our agenda with every Willow Glen Lions meeting is our end-of-the-evening raffle, in which our own members bring gifts of various sorts, and we purchase tickets to try to win something. It’s a first-come, first-served whereas the first winner gets to choose from any gift on the lineup, and each winner thereafter chooses something from what’s left. The gifts vary from bottles of wine (always a favorite!) to previously-and-gently used merchandise such as CDs.
Our first meeting of the New Year started off with great attendance and some cool raffle prizes for all who participated. The raffle selection included everything from a huge bottle of Scotch (won by one of our guests!) to a box of exotic teas… but the prizes that got everyone’s attention were three authentic Mardi Gras feathered masks from New Orleans. With three winners in our midst, the cameras had to capture photos of our wacky and wonderful WGLions posing with the masks.
If you’ve never had a chance to enjoy one of our meetings at Willow Glen Lions Club, mark a date on your calendar to visit us on either the second or fourth Wednesday evening of each month, from 6:30 to 8:30 at Denny’s on Hillsdale just west of Almaden Expressway!
