The Chilton Lions Club invites everyone to help kick off its 50th year by attending the New Hope Center’s “Kicks For Hope” kickball tournament Aug. 6-7 at Nennig Park, where the Lions Club is sponsoring the Saturday night fireworks display.

Founded in 1973, the Chilton Lions Club officially begins its 50th year of serving the community after July 1, with the beginning of its new fiscal year. Annually, the club supports projects, activities and groups focused on recreation, health, safety, education, individuals with special needs, and overall community goodwill.

The New Hope Center is among the important organizations that the Lions Club supports. The center’s Fourth Annual Kickball Tournament raises funds to assist individuals with a variety of important services including transportation, daily living skills, in-home care, employment placement and job training, and recreational opportunities.

The Kicks For Hope Kickball Tournament offers fun for families and people of all ages. The weekend events at Nennig Park include the two-day tournament, bean bag tournament, food, beverages and raffles. There will be music all weekend from local DJs, as well as the Lions-sponsored fireworks show Saturday at dusk.

“I want to congratulate the Chilton Lions Club for reaching 50 years of service. All of us at New Hope Center appreciate the partnership, as well as the club’s ongoing support of us and the array of services our center provides that adds meaningful value to so many individuals within our community,” said Greg Logemann, executive director and CEO.
