The Lion’s Den


By Dick Andrews

It doesn’t seem possible, but The Milford Lions Club annual Spaghetti Dinner is just a month away. The dinner is at the Milford High School, Saturday March 3rd, serving from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The cost is $9.00 and $4.00 for children under 12. You can receive a $1 off the meal cost by displaying a Milford High School play ticket or using the coupon form the front of the Lions Phone Book. Tickets can be purchased from any Lion or at the door. Take-outs are available.

The money raised is used for our Youth & Education programs, such as Little League, Pop Warner, various school sports, our academic achievement and scholarship programs. Last year we donate over $18,000 for these programs. We donated $2000 to the High School academic achievement program, $12,500 for scholarships and $4000 for miscellaneous youth programs. The Milford Lions Club could not do this without the continuing support we receive from the Milford community.

The Spaghetti dinner has been a club project since 1966. The first dinners were held in November and later moved to the first Saturday in March to coincide with the High School play. Over the years the turnout has increased to where we now serve 500 dinners. Since that first Spaghetti Dinner we have made a lot of spaghetti sauce under the directions of Lion Bill Eisenbrey. Lion Bill has trained several Lions the fine art of making his special spaghetti sauce.

This is a true Lion family project, which we could not do without help from our spouses and children. The Lions youth organization, the Milford High School Leo’s, have been a big help for many years, helping us to serve and waiting tables.

This is a real family affair, so bring the children and come out to the Milford Lions annual Spaghetti Dinner, Saturday March 3rd, 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Milford High School.
