Lions did all the cooking and serving at their Pancake Breakfast on Sunday, March 3 at the Life Enrichment Center of Oyster Bay. On Sunday, April 21, they will be relaxing as they enjoy the fun and food at their 8th Annual Spring Benefit at the Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club. The event will honor Lion Jerry Mavros for his 50 years of service to the club. The club was chartered in 1948.
For about 40 years Jerry cooked at the Oyster Bay Restaurant on Audrey Avenue before he retired. [It is now the site of Taby’s.] He continued to share his culinary talent by cooking for the St. Dominic R.C. Saint Rocco Feast [although he is Greek, not Italian nor a Catholic] and for the Oyster Festival. The spring benefit is a great event that includes silent auction items, raffles and a 50/50. Come and enjoy an afternoon at the yacht club from 4 to 7 p.m. while benefiting the Lion’s charitable work. Reserve your tickets by calling 922-2967.
