San Manuel — The San Manuel-Oracle Lions are getting ready for their 51st annual Quail Hunter’s Breakfast from Friday, Oct. 4 to Sunday, Oct. 6. The event will include a drawing at noon on the last day. This year the breakfast will be dedicated to the memory of Lions who have passed away. Tickets will be going on sale, soon.
In the meantime, the Lions Club is seeking help to hold the event. The event will raise money for their charity funds, such as purchasing glasses for individuals in need. Pancake mix, ham, eggs, plates, setups and more are needed to make this event happen. Help the Lions Club help you.
“We are having trouble getting what we need to put the event on. We need tables, chairs and a tent, among other things,” said Lion Donald Wright. “We need volunteers to help with the breakfast. Our members are getting old, so we can’t perform the way we used to.”
In addition, the Lions Club, which has done so much for the Tri-Community area, is suffering from the same woes that we all go through in a bad economy. It is losing members, as more people find themselves having to resign, unable to pay their dues.
If you would like to donate, contact Lion Don Wright at 520-385-4685, or President Emilio Soto at 520-483-6058. Donations can be sent to the San Manuel-Oracle Lions at 419 S. Tierra Verde Pl. San Manuel, AZ 85631.
