The Emo and District Lions Club's annual “Hunters Night," also known as "Wild Meat Night,” was a complete success, according to organizers.
More than 300 people were served a fantastic meal of moose roast, deer stew, bear and apple sausages, walleye, buns, and veggies.
As well, a huge penny table containing some fabulous prices was a big hit with everyone in attendance (a list of the winners can be found on the club's Facebook page).
The live auction, meanwhile, was absolutely amazing, with so many people bidding generously on all the items. Thanks goes out to Telford Advent for his usual professional job as auctioneer.
With the money raised, which will go to the playground at the Devlin Ball Park, everyone seemed to get in the spirit and kept trying to out-bid each other.
The best moment was when the bidding opened on a cheesecake by made by Lion Chelsey. The first person to win suggested that they bid again on the cake. This happened many times until the auctioneer finally ended the bidding.
Everyone honoured their bid so a group picture of all the winners was taken.
Thanks to everyone who attended, donated prizes, took part in the bidding, and placed tickets at the penny table. Thanks, as well, to the students and other non-Lions who volunteered their services for setting up and cleaning up at the end of the event.
Together, we had a great evening of fabulous food and fun.
