Altogether, the Burney Lions served Thanksgiving dinner to more than 200 people. Over 100 came to the Burney Lions Hall to share a delicious meal in a family-like community atmosphere. Another two score came for take out meals, and about three dozen meals were delivered to seniors and shut-ins. The meal included turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans, a roll and butter, cranberry sauce, and pie for dessert.
Amongst the celebrants, were Lions Dr. Bill Cummings and his wife together with their daughter, granddaughter, and great-grandson.
Lion President Mike Barnes welcomed the community to the annual Thanksgiving meal and recognized Dr. Cummings for his more than three decades of service to the Lions.
Dr. Cummings said, “This is the first time in more than a quarter of a century that I have not been working to help serve the Thanksgiving meal! It is a very pleasurable opportunity to enjoy this day together with my wife, daughter, granddaughter, and great-grandson.”
The meal was prepared by Burney Lions cooks, and enthusiastically served by members of the local Leos Club. Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts.
