On Nov. 21, the Bryson Lions Club celebrated 67 years of putting in work for their community with a supper and awards ceremony. Lions, Lionettes and local residents all crowded around the tables in the Lions Hall for the evening.
After the guests ate their fill from the huge potluck buffet, Lion Ed Gutoskie greeted the crowd and listed off the numerous community projects the club has supported over the years. Back in the 1950s when the club had just formed, they were quite popular with the local youngsters on Halloween, giving out as many as 750 bags in one evening. Over the years, they funded countless community upgrades, from the beach to lights and bleachers for the ball park.
