To the editor:
The Eleventh Annual Calumet Lions Club Hunting and Sports dinner was held Sept. 27 at the Irish Times Pub and Restaurant in Laurium.
This is the largest fundraiser for the Calumet Lions Club, which is held yearly in the fall. The event this year was once again sold out and hosted 34 sponsors. All of the event's proceeds are returned to the local community to help support the many programs and projects of the Lions Club. In addition to the money raised, the Lions Club will be matching a Trust Fund grant for the remainder of the project to complete the nature trail around the Calumet Lake.
Our sponsors are community-minded and without their support, the event would not be possible. The club also wants to thank all of the other 90-plus businesses who contributed to the success of the event through there generous donations.
