The 108 Mile Lions Club is hosting its Spaghetti Dinner, Dance and Silent Auction May 11

The 108 Mile Lions Club is hosting its Spaghetti Dinner, Dance and Silent Auction at the 108 Community Hall on May 11.

It promises to be a fun evening, beginning with happy hour at 5:30 p.m. At that time, people will also be able to start writing bids for several great silent auction items, which includes gift baskets and a four-person rubber raft.

The spaghetti dinner features the Lions’ own special homemade sauce, which Lions president Pam Hales says is well-known.

“We make it all the time and people love it.”

Caesar salad and garlic bread round out the meal, which will be served at 6:30 p.m.

The Art of Noise DJ service will play tunes for the dance, which goes from 8 p.m. to midnight and for those who need a ride home, the 108 Mile Ranch Volunteer Fire Department will be providing that service.

Tickets are $15 each, and can be purchased at Donex and 108 Mile Supermarket until 5:30 p.m., May 10.

A limit of 100 tickets will be sold and the proceeds will be invested back into the community, Hales says, adding a portion is ear-marked for the proposed 108 Beach playground, providing it goes through.

The Lions president says she is hoping for a good turnout.

“I think this community needs a dance. They enjoy dancing.”
