Sandpoint Lions Club gives thanks…

Dear Editor,

The Sandpoint Lions Club would like to take this opportunity to thank Schweitzer Mountain Resort and Papé Machinery for their participation in this year’s Independence Day Celebration.

Without the generous gift on a 2015/2016 season ski pass and Papé’s assistance in purchasing a John Deere Gator, the Lions Club would have had difficulty in affording such great gifts to celebrate the birth of our nation.

Thank you students of Sandpoint High School for accepting our invitation to be Grand Marshal of this year’s festivities. Due to your fundraising abilities “Moose Madness” for several years now, you have made literally thousands of Sandpoint children very happy on Christmas morning.

To our large donors; Idaho Forest Group, Downtown Business Association, and Pierce Auto Center for your generous contribution to this event. To all the merchants who purchased raffle tickets, you haven’t been forgotten and we appreciate your help in ensuring the success of this great day.

It has been a pleasure of the Sandpoint Lions Club to present the Independence Day Celebration to all of the citizens who purchased raffle tickets. Without your support, none of this would have been possible.

Our thanks also goes out to the Daily Bee for your generous support over the years. You have been the Lions Club voice to the community. Without your help it would have been very difficult to keep the community appraised of Lions Club events. And thank you Reader for your contribution to this event. To KRFY Radio and Blue Sky Broadcasting for your help in informing the public of our activities. Hopefully, I have not forgotten anyone. If I have, it was not done on purpose. My sincere apologies for not mentioning you.

Come and visit us our Facebook page and we are now on Twitter. Or contact us our email address is [email protected] If you are interested in supporting your community think about becoming a Lion. Our mottor is “We Serve.” Our telephone number is 263-4118. Leave us a message and we will get back to you.

While we have you ...

... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.

You can contribute at either Paypal or Patreon.
