Support brought successful year

Dear Editor,

The Speculator Lions Club sincerely appreciates all the support our friends, neighbors and guests have given us in 2013.

It has been a successful year, beginning with our wine tasting event at Melody Lodge in May and ending with the unprecedented success of our pancake breakfast / fly-in held Aug. 24 at Piseco Airport. The Lions and other volunteers served 737 meals (topping last year's 600 plus) and we had a record-breaking 58 planes join the event.

The fly-in, combined with the kayak raffle, was a very successful fundraising event for us. All proceeds we raise are used for Lions' charities.

We look forward to participation in our upcoming events and again, thank everyone for their tremendous support this year.

Bryan F. Rudes, president
