The winner of this year's Lennon Lions Tractor Raffle is Bob Rosser.  Mr. and Mrs. Rosser are pictured above.  From left to right, Tim Alderman of Alderman's, Inc., Carl Sahlke, Mr. and Mrs. Rosser and Bob Sturgis.  The Rossers had ticket #1289 and opted to take the $3500 check rather than the tractor. The other winners of the raffle won $100.  J. Olson had Ticket #1244, G. Nemeth had ticket #0182, L. Albright had ticket #0913 and J. Powell ticket #1008.

The Lennon Lions would like to thank all of the Lennon Lions Homecoming sponsors, the volunteers, parade participants, car show participants and all the other people that support the Lennon Lions club.

At this year's event there were 27 tractor pull entries along with numerous kids peddle tractor winners.  There were also 84 car show entries, several venders and volunteers.

The chicken dinner was, once again, a big success.  The Venice Township firefighters put on a pancake breakfast and also hosted a kids saw dust coin scramble.

The Lennon Lions club will soon be working on their next gun raffle and it's never too soon to think about us for your Christmas tree purchase in December also.

Two days ago, Dr. William C. Foster, owner of Fries Veterinary Clinic and one of the organizers behind the group known as Greater Durand Area Citizens for Responsible Growth, told Durand Now that the group is "working on getting our paperwork filed with the State and generating our Bylaws."

The group has met twice at the Durand Eagles Aerie #3851 on New Lothrop Road -- directly across the road from the proposed home of a major industrial development dubbed 'Project Tim,' that, to date, is cloaked in secrecy.
