The South Mountain Agricultural Hall was full to capacity this past Saturday to see the King of Rock and Roll in the flesh. The Inkerman-born Michael John has wowed the crowds all over the world, especially in Las Vegas, before coming to South Mountain with his band. The fun filled performance, in full diamond-studded glory, was a hit with all those in attendance at the annual spring dinner and show in support of the Mountain Township and District Lions Club.
The culmination of many hours of volunteer effort over the past months, this show will allow the Lions to continue their support of many local projects.
With the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Hill 70 approaching this summer, the Lions and the Legion Branch 108, and the North Dundas Historical Society are preparing a ceremony of remembrance on August 27 at the memorial at the park in Mountain.
This summer also marks Canada’s 150th, which will be celebrated in grand style by Mountain, Winchester and Chesterville Lions at the South Mountain Fair Grounds. Join us for great music, fun for the whole family, and the most impressive fireworks display to date!
The Hill 70 Memorial and Canada Day are just some of the projects that would not have been possible without the unwavering support of those who came out to see Elvis and enjoy a fantastic steak dinner. The Mountain Township and District Lions Club would like to thank you all and look forward to seeing you at our fall dinner and show.
