    The Car Show is the 2nd largest fundraiser of the New Fairfield Lions Club and all the net
proceeds are redirected back into the many programs, organizations, and charities that they sponsor in
New Fairfield and the surrounding communities. The New Fairfield Lions Club sponsors annual events for
the Senior Citizens, Pediatric Eye Screening, CRIS Radio for the hearing impaired, Scholarships for High
School Seniors, and several local youth and sports organizations. They are also the proud sponsors of
their young Lions that meet in the Middle School and High School, the New Fairfield Leos Club. The Leos
Club will be collecting Toys at the Car Show, which will be donated to children who are being treated for
Pediatric Cancer in local hospitals. Please bring a new, unwrapped toy and drop it off at the Leos Table.
Please come and support the New Fairfield Lions Club and make all the owners of these
beautiful vehicles know that people enjoy seeing the fruits of their labor in maintaining or restoring
these beautiful vehicles.
    As always, if you or someone you know enjoys “Serving Those In Need” and giving back to the
community, then the New Fairfield Lions Club is for you! Feel free to ask any of the Lions Club members
to invite you to attend one of their events or dinner meetings. The New Fairfield Lions Club meets on the
