The Springfield Lions Club feels compelled to respond to the recent article concerning the operation of the concession stand at Idle Hour Park.
The Lions Club is a service club and our motto is “We Serve.”
We are a small group of approximately 20 men and women who operate the concession stand at the park as a part of our service to the community.
We have been extending this courtesy to the community for over 25 years.
The Lions Club has never had a written agreement with the city.
I know it is too early to plant seeds. I know we will most likely have another hard frost, maybe even a freeze. I’m looking up at the impatient peach tree with pink showing at the tips of the buds. The mockingbird practices his octaves. “Where’s my lady love?” he sings away. The tree creeper’s chorus vibrates the evening fog.
