Beat ‘Cabin Fever’ while helping the Lions Club

SOUTHWICK – Dance the winter blues away while contributing to local causes at the Cabin Fever Dance Feb. 29 at Southwick Recreation Center.

Proceeds benefit the Southwick Lions Club and its programs.

Lions Club 2nd Vice President Marie Lemarier said the Lions Club mission is to support the community.

“We contribute to a lot of town programs and activities,” she said. “We give to the food pantry, scholarships, provide help when someone has an emergency such as a fire, but our main focus is hearing and eye health. We help with hearing and eye screening.”

The Cabin Fever Dance is the first-ever event for the Club.

“We used to have a comedy show, but we wanted to try something different, and I like to dance,” Lemarier said.

Steel-N-Eazy band will perform live country and southern rock music, and raffle tickets for 50 different prizes will be available that night.

“We have a golf foursome at The Ranch, a 4-pack of Thunderbirds tickets, gift cards to pretty much every restaurant in town, cards to Big Y, Blossoming Acres, Country Colonial Gift Shop, Blandford Ski and more,” said Lemarier.

Tickets are $10 at the door and there will be a cash bar. Lemarier said guests are welcome to bring their own snacks to enjoy at their table. The dance is from 7-11 p.m.

The Southwick Lions Club meets the first Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m. at Tucker’s Restaurant. Lemarier said the group welcomes all to attend and although the Club has more than 50 members, she always welcomes “new active members” to the Club.
