On Saturday, July 4, the Barker Lions will hold another chicken barbecue. The complete meal consists of a half chicken, three-bean salad, macaroni salad, roll and butter. The included dessert is a gourmet cookie. Tickets are $10 presale, or $11 at the door. They are available by calling Lion Margo at 716-778-7001 or by emailing [email protected].
The Barker Lions want to thank everyone who supported its Mother’s Day and Memorial Day chicken barbecues. As Helen Keller’s Knights of the Blind, the Lions Club funds glasses and hearing aids for those in the community who cannot afford them. Members also install wheelchair lifts and have a loan closet for those with health challenges. Funds raised further these efforts.
Dinners will be ready for pick up at 11 a.m. at the Barker Lions Building on Main Street in Barker. Presale dinners are held until 1 p.m. To meet the social distancing standards, there will be a Lion at the door to admit people to pick up their dinners or to bring the dinner curbside.
The Barker Lions are also continuing an American flag sale. Durable nylon flags are made by the visually impaired at the Olmsted Center in Buffalo. They will be available during the chicken barbecue or by using the contact information above.
