    Which days do you meet during the month?

  2. Hello Fellow Optimist, I am the Leo-Advisor for the youth group called the Vernon Leos Club. We are planning a fundraiser with Vernon Parks Services on May 19th from 0700-0930 in the Old Canadian Tire parking lot.

    The event is called “Breakfast in a Box” and will be a drive-through type of venue. One of our major sponsors dropped out at the last minute and we sure could use some financial aid. Gift cards from the whole club is what we are asking for so that we can purchase clam shell boxes, plastic forks, breakfast sausages, pancake mix, syrup and butter packs. We anticipate over 500 breakfasts to be served.

    I invite you to set up a tent as well if you are so inclined, this will become an annual event and will be highly visible. I’ve also arranged lots of publicity for it through KSSFM, Black Press and CHBC.

    I thank you in advance for any support given,
