Lion's Club volunteers at bluegrass festival


After a three-year hiatus, the Birdfest bluegrass music festival returned this year and your Manning Lions volunteered to work the gate.  Prior to the May 5-6 event, they created packets for each attendee which contained their prepaid tickets, parking passes, RV/tent camping permits, etc.  Over three days, the Lions monitored the gate, handed out the packets, and directed patrons to their parking or camp site.  This year’s Birdfest partnered with the South Carolina Waterfowl Association and the venue was at their Wildlife Education Center.

If you are looking for a way to serve your community, become a Lion.  The Club meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at Porter Jacks Grill.  For more information:  manningsclions@gmail.com.
