Flowers, prime rib dinners, and show tickets are among the many excellent prizes and coupons for participants of the Lions Walk/Run event coming up on May 12.
At this point, registration is down from previous years but prizes and coupons are plentiful and there are many very attractive items.
This is going to be a bad year for ticks, fleas and chiggers but one of the coupons can help eliminate your worry. Included in the packet is a coupon for a free yard or lawn spraying. This will eliminate or reduce the pesky little critters from your lawn so your kids or pets can play without concern. This is a $75 coupon and will be placed in each runner packet. This coupon is only good for the registered participants but a $75 lawn spraying is certainly worth the $10 registration fee.
Many people have said they don’t intend to walk in the event but are going to register just to get the food and discount coupons not available to the public.
Other coupons include a free dessert with purchase of a meal, free bottles of water, and free soda.
Free cartons of milk will also be available to the youngsters.
Mother’s day is on Sunday, May 13, the day following the Lions Walk for Sight. A special coupon in the packet has been donated for a Mother’s Day floral arrangement.
Larry Morrison, Lions president, said “even with just these few coupons, it would still be a good event and profitable for all participants, but when we add in all the other coupons, all the free food coupons, dinners, and shows, the prizes and packets will be worth several hundred dollars each.
Branson has come through once again with many of the shows donating tickets, as well as gift certificates for favorite dining locations.
All tolled, the $10 registration fee will net the participant a T-shirt and a free yard spraying, free food, show tickets, a day at a Branson attraction, Mother’s Day flowers and much more, generating a packet worth over $300.
In addition, Pastor Ron Wallace and Cross Point Church have offered their church facilities to allow people to get in out of the weather and use bathroom facilities. “It is the good people of Ava like Cross Point Church and all our sponsors and supporters that help the Ava Lions Club help the people of Ava and Douglas County,” Morrison said.
Registration forms are available at many local businesses.
All money raised stays here in Ava and Douglas County to provide assistance to the hearing or sight impaired.
The Ava Lions just completed visiting all the schools in Douglas County where they tested the hearing of over 700 students. This is just one of the many community service projects provided by the Ava Lions Club. Money raised at events like the walk/run help support these projects.
