The 2023 Richard Newell Memorial Fly-in Drive-in Breakfast at Piseco Airport K09 was held 8AM-11AM on Saturday August 26. The weather looked questionable early on, but it turned out to be perfect. We served 770 breakfasts and 17 aircraft flew in. Attendence was down a bit from last year, but still very good considering the weather forcast. We would like to extend a big thank you to all who attended, and particularly to those who helped with the event and those who responded to our new member outreach.
The 2023 Mary Ann Ryan and Fred Miller, Jr. Scholarship award winner is Kayla Rust, from Wells NY. Kayla has worked with animal rescue and is going to Skidmore with an ultimate goal of becoming a veterinarian.
The annual Fly-in / Drive-in Breakfast is always the last Saturday in August.
The annual Snowmobile Poker Run was put on hold during COVID. We need new members in order to resume the event, typically held on the third Saturday in February.
The Speculator Lions Club was chartered in September of 1962 and has served the local communities of Speculator, Lake Pleasant, Piseco, and Wells for over 60 years.
Fundraising is key to the success of the Speculator Lions Club. This is accomplished through large and small events – for example, the Summer Raffle and Snowmobile Poker Run have been held annually for over 20 years. The Breakfast Fly-in has been held since 1975.
Fundraising allows the Speculator Lions Club to meet pressing needs in our local communities including winter heating needs, food programs (such as the local food banks and the giving of thanksgiving baskets), a college scholarship for local youths; a Halloween party for children at Lake Pleasant School; and most importantly helping individuals when appropriate and supporting individuals and communities in times of disaster.
Unfortunately, due to limited manpower, we were unable to hold the snowmobile poker run or summer raffle in 2023.
We are looking for new members and new ideas to help contiune our mission of supporting the local community.
