Join Lion Joe for a Roaring Good Time at the Lions Club Auction on April 28!

The annual Lions Club Dinner and Auction will be held on Thursday, April 28, at 6:30 pm at Der Dutchman Restaurant in the banquet rooms. Besides a hearty, homestyle meal, which includes two meats, sides, salad, dessert, and a beverage, there will also be tons of cool items that will be auctioned off.

Dinner will begin at 6:30 pm, but attendees can arrive at 6 pm. Please don’t arrive any earlier than 6, as the Lions members and Der Dutchman staff will be setting up for the evening. The auction itself usually starts around 7:30 pm.

Tickets are $15 per person, which includes your meal and admission to the auction, as well unlimited jokes and entertainment by the Lions members. Tickets can be purchased here at the drugstore, at Schrock Automotive, and at True Value Hardware.

Some of the auction items that you can bid on include a one week use of a Florida condo, four Michelin tires, a 3-piece luggage set, and a one day fishing trip on Lake Erie with Captains Murray and Weeks. Jim Converse’s carved birds, a male and female blue jay, will also be featured in the auction.

Please come for an enjoyable evening. And, remember, bid high and bid often. All of the money made is used to support projects and organizations in the Plain City community.

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.
