LOW Lioness Club Commemorates Independence Day 2017

We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.           The Declaration of Independence

June 7, 1776:  Richard Henry Lee presented a resolution before the 2nd Continental Congress, These United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved.

June 11, 1776:  The 2nd Continental Congress charged Thomas Jefferson, age 33, and 4 others with drafting a formal statement justifying the break with Great Britain.  Though there was input from Benjamin Franklin and John Adams, Jefferson is recognized as principal author of The Declaration of Independence.

July 4, 1776:  The 2nd Continental Congress officially adopted The Declaration of Independence, the eloquent expression of liberty, equality and democracy upon which the country was founded and the foremost statement of those ideals.

July 1, 2017:  The Lake of the Woods Lioness Club celebrated the 50 years of our incredible community and the 241st birthday of our incredible nation.

In remembering a purpose of LOW Lioness to support community services, members made donations to the Wilderness Food Pantry. Orange Bridges and SAFE House.decemberdinnermeeting5decemberdinnermeeting4decemberdinnermeeting7

 

 

 

 

Christkindlmarkt

Thanks to the many who worked to make LOW Lioness participation in the Christkindlmarkt at the Community Center on December 3 a success. Pictured are just some of the volunteers who staffed the event.  Claudia and JoAnn chaired the Bake Sale, while Karin and Isabella chaired the Christmas Item Sale.  Theresa and a team used their talents to make the beautiful denim aprons and wall hangings.  As with all LOW Lioness fundraisers, profit from our participation in Christkindlmarkt goes to the  LOW Lioness Benevolence Fund, and subsequently benefits the less fortunate of our community.
