New Fairfield Lions Club Upcoming Events

September 12th - Senior Picnic @ New Fairfield Town Beach - Candlewood Lake 12pm

On the Saturday after Labor Day each year the NFLC invites Senior Citizens from New Fairfield and Sherman to a complimentary picnic at the New Fairfield Town Park.  In addition to hot dogs, hamburgers and the trimmings, we serve cake and ice cream to over 120 Seniors each year.  After lunch the Lions offer pontoon boat rides on Candlewood Lake to all Seniors who would like to enjoy the beauty of our lake.  Raffle prizes donated by area merchants are awarded at the end of the day.  Sign up for the event is at the New Fairfield Senior Center.

October 11th - 24th Annual Car Show @ Squantz Pond State Park 10am-4pm (rain date October 18th)

Each year we organize an Antique, Classic and Custom Car, Truck and Motorcycle Show held at scenic Squantz Pond.  Plaques are awarded in over 35 different categories and trophies are awarded for the President’s Choice, the Longest Distance traveled and the Best Car Club Representation.  The show runs from 9 a.m. to approximately 3:30 p.m.  Judging begins at 12 p.m. and awards are made as soon as all the judging sheets have been tallied.  About 250 cars enter our competition every year and our flea market attracts vendors of all types.  Dash plaques are distributed to the first 150 registrants and the Lions run a food booth serving breakfast and lunch foods.  All proceeds benefit the many charities we support in our community. To help run this event the Lions are assisted by Boy Scouts from troops 42 and 137 (who are sponsored by the Lions Club) and LEOs.
