“Deeds” are being sold for $5 for each square yard plot. Once “Poopsie” the cow is released onto the field, whoever owns the plot that “Poopsie” fertilizes, will walk away with $500.

“Deeds” are available for purchase at Cakes Galore and More in Oswego. “Deeds” are also available from any Oswego Lions Club member. Last year’s winner of the $500 was Sara Merritt.

The proceeds from the Cow Chip Bingo will be used to support an annual scholarship in the memory of Harold H and Mary Dowd.

This year, we will once again feature the Classic Car Show from noon to 3 p.m. the day of the event. Prizes will be given out for the Best Paint Job, Best Modified Truck, Best Modified Car, Best Stock Car and Best Stock Truck.

If you are interested in entering your classic car in the show, contact Chip Pelton at 529-0473 or register your car online at [email protected]  Give your make, model and year of car. There is no entry fee to enter your classic car. All are welcome!

Thanks to our sponsors, Fulton Savings Bank, Ken’s Body Shop, Nelson Law Firm, Pathfinder Bank and Murphy’s Auto Care, this fun-filled afternoon will also feature live music by Joe Donelan playing top tunes from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s right through to today. He will play from noon to 3 p.m.

Adding that special touch to the event again this year will be the world famous “Lighthouse Lanes Chicken BBQ,” which will run from noon until 3 p.m. (or sold out). Presale tickets for the BBQ are $8 (must pick up by 2 p.m.) or $10 on the day of the event. The BBQ includes chicken, baked beans, salt potatoes and a dinner roll.

There will be chairs and tables set up outside so you can relax and enjoy your dinner and listen to the live music.

Oswego Lions Club raises money through various fundraisers and distributes this money in the community. The primary mission of the Lions Club is sight and hearing related projects. This includes assisting community residents and school students with eye exams, eyeglasses, and hearing aids.

In addition to sight and hearing, the club donates money to many worthy organizations in the community.

The Oswego Lions Club is also encouraging new members to join the organization and those interested in more information about joining should contact Jen Vivlemore, membership chair at 591-7571.
