Cape Girardeau Evening Lions Club Holds First Annual Cornhole Tournament At The Library (Downtown Cape)

MO Lions District 26M1 Governor, Lion Jerry Reaves observed after meeting the new members of the Cape Evening Lions, "Wow, you have young members!" I was proud to reply with, "and they know what they're doing!" Usually, newer members of any club will be able to sit and watch others perform what's needed at a fundraiser event the first time. NOT THIS BUNCH!!! Everyone stepped up to the plate making an event a success though questionable weather conditions existed. THANK YOU Lions Dylan, Jake, Kim and Laura from DG Lion Jerry, 2nd VDG Marilynn and Lions Kory, Laurie, Allen and Dave!

The Cape Girardeau Evening Lions Club held its First Annual Cornhole Tournament at The Library (Downtown Cape) as the rain lifted, Saturday, October 2 enjoying a great turnout, fellowship and bag throwing.

The team of Terry Schnurbusch and Dalton Hall took First Place in a down to the wire contest defeating Smoky and Shell.

Many attendees took the challenge of throwing three bags to make three holes while wearing special glasses provided by Club Member Dr. Laura Evans of Leet Eyecare. No one was able to do all three for the $100 prize but Terry Schnurbusch and Trevor Denton were able to take consolation prizes!

Dru Leet won the 50/50 Drawing donating the winnings back helping the Cape Girardeau Evening Lions Club serve needs in the local community with the Calvin R. Wells Scholarship and worldwide through LCIF, KidSight MO, Leader Dogs for the Blind, Mid-South Lions and World Services for the Blind.

Competition was tough and the Final Match was down to the wire as the team of Schnurbusch and Dalton Hall defeat Smoky/Schell!

The Cape Girardeau Evening Lions want to thank the Cape Girardeau Noon Optimist Club for lending your Club President, Kevin Denton to be the event's emcee.

Making A Difference!
