Formed just nine years ago, the South Grand Lake chapter of the Lions Club, has grown to be the largest Lions Club in the State of Oklahoma with a total membership of over 86. This is due to the dedication of its members, through fun and fellowship, to make our community a better place.
Through our fundraising efforts, from the Grand Dam Run, to the Grand Lake BBQ Festival, to the Chili Cook Off festival, we have raised thousands of dollars, which has helped fund the Ketchum Back Pack Program, the Veterans Plaza in Langley, scholarships for Ketchum High School students and the Meals on Wheels Program.
If you would like to enter either contest or participate as a vendor, you can pick up an application at Langley Tag Agency, Valley National Bank or Grand Lake Medical Park in Langley.
If you would like further information, please contact Tami Bailey at (918) 527-8780 or Sheryl Hicks at (918) 636-0088.
Everyone is invited to come out on October 17, to participate in the fun and support the community.
