The Port Williams and District Lions Club held their annual Valentine’s Day dinner, this year in support of the Valley Regional Hospital Foundation.  The event began four years ago so the club could fulfill their part of the Nova Scotia Lions Clubs’ commitment to Brigadoon Village, but the event quickly became a local Valentine’s Day tradition, so they decided to continue it and use the money raised to enable them to support other projects. King Lion Kendall Hutchinson presented a cheque for $1,000 to Angela Mansfield of the foundation for the purchase of an oxygen monitor for use in the medical unit.

Couples sat at beautifully decorated tables, enjoyed pink champagne and conversation with friends. The red, pink and white carnations that added to the Valentine atmosphere were given to the ladies to take home. The delicious roast beef dinner and strawberry shortcake was prepared and served to the 100 couples by the Lions Club members with the assistance of spouses and friends.

Making a return engagement to the event was our own Ken Bezanson on piano and brothers Paul Rand on saxophone and Lindsay Rand on trumpet. A special treat this year was Lindsay’s daughter, Elaine, as vocalist. The combo entertained the audience throughout the evening ending with a request from the audience of “Moon River”.

Local businesses generously supported the event by providing gift certificates and items that were the many door prizes given out at the end of the evening. Of special note is the painting of Kingsport, donated by village artist Deanna Smith and won by Claudia Coldwell.
