The Lions Club is dishing up a winner at the Great Northern Fair with its line of pronto pups, cheese fries, nachos and pop and for the healthy, dont forget the Culligan water.
Into the fairs second day, the rain was falling steady, but self proclaimed chairman for a day Jim Ward said the crowd was able to match it with a steady flow, ordering all the goodies generally associated with the carnival.
It hasnt been as bad as far as the rain goes, Ward said. Its better than we thought it would be pretty steady.
The food went across the counter in spurts to hungry patrons. Super cheesy nachos and deep fried fries, ooy-gooy pronto pops and the likes. Its seems the only thing missing was the water.
Waters not selling, Ward said.
Ward said the Lions club holds approximately 85 member in the Havre area. The club works on community and youth projects in town and is currently upgrading the softball field behind Big-R.
Were putting in bathrooms and dugouts, Ward said, adding that the proceeds from the sales at the fair will go toward other youth projects.
Members of the Lions Club were assisted by members of the Havre community swim team. The booth had no leeks and proved to be a sanctuary out of the rain.
Lions Club Presidents Chuck Klunder, who was said to be a former weather man, predicted hot and dusty weather with a grin.
