For 31 years, the Lions Club has honored Continental's seniors as one part of their many service projects.The Continental chapter was started in 1981, and annually, the Club saw fit to feed and honor the seniors with steak, mashed potatoes, noodles, green beans, and pie. Entertainment and door prizes are also proved for the evening.
Because the dinner is well received within the community, citizens from all over donate pies and help to the event.
Lion's Club member Ed Rau commented, "About 100 seniors show up every year for the event. This year our entertainment will be the Country Gentleman from the Kalida area. This dinner is very accepted by our community. 99 percent of our area seniors will be there for the meal, and we believe this marks a great success."
