Ingleside Long Sault Lost Villages Lions Club at the Stormont County Fair by Reg Coffey

Lions Club Concession

Newington – The brand new Lions Club in South Stormont sprang into action this past weekend to run the food concession at the Newington Fair grounds for the Stormont Country Fair. With a rather lengthy name the club usually just refers to itself as the Lost Villages Lions Club. When the club heard that the concession was available with a little cleanup and paint, they jumped at the chance to provide a service to the Fair and raise a little money for their charitable fund.

The serving window looked out on the baseball diamond where teams where hard at play in the steaming heat of the day. The club provided water, sodas, hot dogs, hamburgers, peameal bacon on a bun, sandwiches and even hot coffee to those watching the baseball games or perusing the agricultural display inside the building.

And there were pies. That seemed to be a particular point of interest of many people.

In spite of the oppressive heat the fair was well attended and the Lost Villages Lions Club provided reasonably priced food and beverages to the hungry crowd. This is only the beginning of the community services and charitable donations by the Lost Villages Lions Club that are the hallmark of the Lions Club worldwide.
