You can’t get very far until you start doing something for somebody else.
Melvin Jones

What has been set so far:

The Friday night event will be an OLD FASHION MANITOBA SOCIAL. If you have never been to one, you will not want to miss this evening. Food, Dancing, Silent Auction prizes and lots of FUN...  

Check out the information on an OLD Fashion Manitoba Social on the NEWS page of the website.

Also available for alternate activities are Wonderful Winnipeg City Tours and Painting with Rick, These are extra cost but very good value for the money. Find out more details on the fundraising pages of the website.

Right after the Hall of Fame lunch  you will be able to Walk around The Block for the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides. This fundraising event will require a $20.00 CDN donation which will go directly to the Lions Foundation of Canada Walk for Dog Guides program. You will also receive a t-shirt for your donation from Pet Valu. If you are not inspired to walk around the block, the committee will have a cinder block in the middle of the room which will make the walk easier...Check out the details on the Fundraising page.
