Hobo Day

HOBO Day has been RESCHEDULED from this Saturday January 19th to Saturday March 16th due to the weather forecast for the weekend & the safety of all Lion's.

It is time for the District M6 fun “Hobo Day” event on Saturday, January 19, 2019 starting at 4:30 pm at the Ernte Fest Building (North Main, Freistatt, MO).
Hobo Day is packed with silent & live auction, 50/50 drawing, cake walks & best of all the best dressed HOBO competition!!!  The will be a dinner with our own PDG Lion Kevin Cantrell & his brother Eugene preparing to melt in your mouth.
Hobo Day is a district fundraiser to raise funds for our district expenses enabling us to keep our district dues to a minimum while enjoying fellowship with other Lions.  In order for this to be a successful fundraiser event for our district, each club needs to donate an item of $25.00 or more in value or make a monetary donation.  You can take your item(s) or donation to your Zone Chair, DG Walter Hamer, 1st DG Toni Morris or Hobo Chair Lion Darci Klick. 
You can also help support the cause by bringing new items for the Silent Auction or a cake as they are needed or dessert as well. 
The district appreciates your support of this very important District fundraiser/social event!  None of the events would be possible without participation from across the District.
See you there!
Lion Darci Klick – Hobo Chairman
