Eagle is Hand Carved Bird for this Year’s Lions Club Auction!

Each year, Jim Converse kindly donates his time and talents and carves a bird to be auctioned off at the Plain City Lions Club Auction. This year, Jim really outdid himself with an eagle holding a shield and a bundle of arrows in honor of the Great Seal of the United States.

Stop in the pharmacy and take a look at Jim’s eagle before the auction. We have it on display on the front counter. You can’t miss it. And once you see it, you will want to bid on it!

You can bid on Jim’s eagle at the auction, along with several other great items, including: Four Michelin tires, one week’s use of a Florida condo, a fishing trip on Lake Erie with Captains Richard Murray and Roger Weeks, Spanish lessons with Lion Veronica Taylor, and a garage door opener.

The Lions Club Annual Dinner and Auction will be held on Thursday, April 26, in the Banquet room at Der Dutchman Restaurant in Plain City at 6:30 pm.

Tickets are $15, which includes a family style dinner and entry to the auction. The meal will be served at 6:30 pm. Tickets can be purchased at True Value Hardware (see Lion Perry Yoder), Schrock Automotive (see Lion Bill Davis), and here at the pharmacy (see Joe). The auctioneers this year are Geoff Smith, Frank Roby, and John Hammond.

Lions Club Auction Items Feature Carved Blue Jays by Jim Converse and a Trip with The Captains.

Each year, Jim Converse graciously carves and donates a piece of artwork featuring one of his famous birds to the Plain City Lions Club for their annual charity auction in April. On Thursday, March 17, Jim dropped off his latest carving that features a male and a female blue jay. Jim’s carvings are always so realistic that you wait anxiously for the birds to chirp. The blue jays are no exception, looking so life like, with each feather detailed, that you imagine they may just fly away.

The blue jay carving will be auctioned off at the Lion’s Club Auction on Thursday, April 28.

Jim spends so many hours on these carvings that there is no way we could ever thank him enough for his time and dedication to the Lions. But we will try. Thank you, Jim, for your generosity each year and for using your talents for charity.

Besides the blue jays, there is also another priceless item being auctioned off–a fishing trip at Lake Erie with Captains Richard Murray and Roger Weeks. Joe and I have been out with these two and we know you will not have a better experience navigating the Lake than with Richard and Roger. And when you come back from your tour around the Lake, you will probably be loaded with perch–but even if you don’t catch a single fish, we can assure you, you will arrive home feeling very happy and carrying tons of good memories of your day with the Captains.

So make sure you are at the Lions Auction on April 28 to bid on these one-of-a-kind items.
