Lions collecting deer hides
Drop boxes in New London area
The Medina-Dale-Readfield Lions Club is sponsoring a deer hide collection.
All proceeds from the deer hides will be used for the Wisconsin Lions Camp to help serve the needs of others.
The Wisconsin Lions Camp began in 1956 and has been dedicated to providing a quality camping experience for people with disabilities. There is no cost for participation in the summer camp program, so contributions are vital to the operation of Lion Camp.
What started in 1988 as just an idea from Bernie Stuttgen, a past director of the Wisconsin Lions Foundation Director, has grown to include more than 200 collection sites throughout Wisconsin.
The deer hide collections are one of the foundation’s most profitable methods of raising funds for the Wisconsin Lions Camp.
In 2021 the deer hide collection fundraiser helped the Wisconsin Lions Foundation raise $87,929 for the Lions Camp. This year, a new goal of $95,000 for Lions Camp has been set.
The Lions Club has deer hide drop off boxes at the following locations:
• New London at Bean City Bar and Grill, New London Building Supply and New London Chamber of Commerce;
• Fremont at the corner of County Trunk II and State Highway 96;
• Readfield at the corner of County Trunk W and State Highway 96;
• Dale at Dale Gas and Oil;
• Medina at Wild Game Finishing;
• Zittau at the corner of County Trunk II and South Road;
