LYNDONVILLE – The Lyndonville Lions recently completed their summer events with a Community Appreciation Concert at the Town of Yates Park on the beautiful shores of Lake Ontario.

The event was held at the newly constructed Russ Martino Pavilion. This concert has been carried out over the last 10 years to thank the community for its support during the year. The crowd was entertained by Crash Cadillac with a long playlist of crowd-pleasing songs.  The Lions served grilled hot dogs and soft drinks during the evening event.

The Lyndonville Lions will be idle for the month of August with no scheduled events. The planning committee is working on Lyndonville Lions Inaugural Golf Tournament planned for Sept. 10 at Hickory Ridge Country Club. Information will be available on the Lions Facebook page or by emailing Gwen Large at

Individuals and foursomes are encouraged to get a team together and attend this event.  The tournament will include pre tee off gifts for each golfer, on-course contests and a steak dinner to follow the tournament.

The Lions Club recently donated picnic supplies to Camp Rainbow in Lyndonville. Ten dozen hot dogs and rolls along with five cases of soda pop were delivered to the staff at Camp Rainbow.  These supplies are expected to be used for a summer cook out for the families and campers at Camp Rainbow this summer.

This camp was started in the 1970s to help the ARC of Orleans County. Two of the original gentlemen who organized and literally help build the camp were Charles Shenberger and Dean Wolfe.

Larry Wolfe, the son of Dean, has been a long-standing member of the Lyndonville Lions.  According to Russ Martino, “Larry has been helpful in every event the Lions hold. His service during the most recent July Fourth Celebration was invaluable. It was a special honor for the club to allow Larry to make the donation to Camp Rainbow.”

The Lyndonville Lions would like to thank all those who contributed and attended the recent July Fourth Celebration. We hope to see you in the fall with upcoming events and wish everyone a safe and happy summer.
