Nelson Lions Club announces firewood sale

Sale starts Sept. 24 across from Blewett School

Submitted by the Nelson Lions Club

On Saturday, Sept. 24 at 8 a.m., the Nelson Lions Club is hosting its annual firewood sale across from Blewett School. The wood is ready for burning this winter, and all money raised will, as always, be contributed back into the community.

The sale will continue until the last piece is gone. Please come prepared to load your own vehicle. Wood is $300 per cord — but as always, you only pay for what you can carry.

Each year Kalesnikoff Lumber generously donates a truck full of lumber that the Lions and other volunteers cut and split — a tradition almost as old as the club itself.

Like the club’s Canada Day pancake breakfast, which this year served over 700 people and raised almost $7,000, the annual firewood sale is one of the many ways the club raises money to serve our community.

Each year, the Nelson Lions Club provides $2,000 in student scholarships, $8,100 in community grants, $9,400 to health and wellness initiatives, as well as contributions to larger global projects through Lions International.
