On May 28, the Milford Lions Club found a way to re-establish fellowship that the members had all been missing and provide some service to the community as well by holding a safe parade.  The club purchased gift cards in $5 and $10 denominations from some of our faithful restaurant supporters who were open for take-out and delivered them to first responders along our route.  Only a small way, but it was a way to thank those businesses who always are willing to donate to our fund-raising & service causes.

First stop was in Lincoln at the Community Center to thank the Sussex County Emergency Medical Services personnel, to Bayhealth Sussex Campus, the Milford Police Department and finally onto Carlisle Fire Hall for presentations to the firemen and Kent County Paramedics.

Easy Speak Spirits donated $200 in gift cards above our purchase and also gave us 30 containers of hand sanitizer to distribute.  King Lion Bruce Hermann II & Karen donated $200 in Mama Maria’s gift cards.  Applebee’s of Milford donated free appetizer coupons.  Applebee’s of Milford and Seaford pooled the frozen entrées that are no longer on their menu and donated the over 200 pounds of food to the Carlisle Fire Company.

Even though Mother Nature provided us with “liquid sunshine”, it did not stop those members with classic cars from bringing them to parade.   The first responders certainly appreciated our gift but the biggest smiles were on the faces of club members who finally could get back to what we do best – SERVE.  As we finished our route, a beautiful double rainbow appeared.
