RC-Giles Breakfast Branch Lions host weekend events
Saturday morning, June 9, saw several members of RC-Giles Breakfast Branch Lions Club at Huffman House in Newport for their annual Meadow Muffin Bingo event. Ron and Carol Baker, owners of the farm, generously provided a large, flat pasture and the services of one of their horses, Wonder, for the morning’s event. Wonder lived up to her name and did a “wonderful” job by making her “deposit” with little delay.
By Saturday evening members reassembled at the Giles County Historical Museum where they had been asked to assist with the barbecue and dance evening that was part of the Sesquicentennial celebration of the Battle of Pearisburg Civil War weekend events. Lions Lisa and Joe Yost, dressed in period costume, served as interpretive actors, Lion “Wild” Bill Anderson taught and led period round and square dances, while Lions Stephen Haight and Charlie and Betty Herbert sold tickets for the barbeque dinner.
Sunday morning found Lions Charlie Herbert, Stephen Haight, Bill Anderson and Al Katz assisting with parking for visitors of the re-enactment at the Confederate encampment on Rt. 100 outside Pearisburg at Bluff City. As in the actual battle the Union Troops were bested by the Confederates.
Rich Creek-Giles Breakfast Branch Lions Club meets the third Thursday of each month at 7 a.m. at Pembroke Methodist Church. For information about becoming a part of RC – Giles Breakfast Branch Lions Club or about upcoming events, call 540-921-1221.
