SWING SET DEDICATION-The dedication of the new special  Happy swing set at Community Park was held on Sunday, May 19th. The Dexter Lions were major contributors to the gazebo and the swing set that was installed at Community Park which is behind LaFontaine Chevrolet. Lion Jerry & Lion Mary Black, and Lion Gil and Lion Marge Campbell attended the dedication ceremony. The Dexter Lions had approved the funds for the purchase of these special Happy swings almost two years ago but it took time to get them and install them. The family did praise the Dexter Lions for being the major contributor at the dedication and recognized the Dexter Lions in attendance. If you get a chance, stop by the park and see the swings that the Dexter Lions purchased. There are photos in this newsletter.
