Projects:

Although we spend many hours throughout the year organizing our annual Apple Festival, we also keep busy throughout the year working on a variety of smaller projects. Some of our projects are undertaken with the purpose of making money for our communities, while others are done as a community service.

We are currently organizing our 34th Annual Apple Festival. For more information call 315-675-8232 or e-mail.

Our school clothing project provides new clothing to local school nurses to dispense to children as needed.

In December, we help our sponsoring Lions Club by wrapping the Christmas gifts for their Christmas Baskets program. Throughout the year, we provide yarn to local volunteers who are kept busy knitting hats and mittens for the baskets.

Our spring Senior Citizen Dinners seem to draw a larger crowd each year. We provide a free dinner and entertainment, in a social atmosphere that is enjoyed by all who attend, including the volunteers. Check back for the date or the next dinner, or watch the Citizen Outlet for more details.


In 2015, under the chairmanship of Lioness Joan, we held our first Bunny Hop Craft and Vendor Show. It was such a success that it is now an annual event held in March, with dates to be announced.

In late summer/fall our members have sold tickets for the Macy’s “Shop for a Cause.” The monies raised benefited many non-profit organizations, and it was an extremely successful event for everyone involved.

In December, we sponsored “A Chili Day with Santa” that coincided with the Central Square Tree Lighting ceremony. In 2010, we used part of the profits from our Apple Festival to purchase new energy efficient lighting for the Village tree.

Some of our ongoing projects include RADA knife sales, dishcloth sales, a Christmas project for shut-ins, and a Hugs and Kisses Valentine project for St. Luke’s nursing home, and pre-event fundraisers to pay start-up costs for the Apple Festival.

Many of our members, along with other community members, have completed approximately 15 hours of Red Cross Mass Care and Shelter instruction. These people are certified to help open and operate a food and shelter station in case of any emergency in the area. Many of our Lioness members were privileged to serve at the center that was set up in the Baldwinsville Fire Station during and after the flash flood that occurred there. It is very satisfying to be able to help people in their time of need. The Lioness plan to take more courses from the American Red Cross in other areas of service.

In 2010, we used part of the profits from our Apple Festival to purchase new energy efficient lighting for the Village Christmas tree.

In 2011 we upgraded the electrical to the small pavilion at the park. All labor was donated by Vic Hasto of AVR Electric, along with help from Tom Pallotta and Derek Croteau. We also installed new water to the rear of the food booth. This was donated by Mike Hart of MC Hart Contracting.
