On September 29 the first inaugural Hungry Lion Bike Tour took place. Hosted by the Whitingham-Halifax Lions, proceeds that were raised are to benefit the food basket program that is done by the Lions in coordination with the Rotary Club in December. Once again local businesses and individuals contributed to make the event a success.
Prize donations were made by Bill and Patty Pusey, Sprague’ s Sugarhouse, Jacksonville Store, Jezebel’s, The Anchor, The Roadhouse, Bicycles Unlimited, First Trax, Nature Spa, Bartleby’s, Mount Snow, Mount Snow Sports, Mount Snow Golf, CB Yoga and Thai Massage, and Timber Creek X/C, and we are ever grateful for those. Thanks also go to Gordon Moore for cutting a stencil for road markings, Leader Distribution Systems for their donation of drinks, and to Brightside Screen Printers for screening our logo on the ride T-shirts. Special thanks to Robin Mathiesen, Kelly Kahler, Chris Holden, and members of the Lions for the help offered on the day of the event. Finally, thank you to the town of Whitingham for supporting our efforts to combat food insecurity in our community.
We are already looking forward to next year.
