Christmas Projects


Here's a photo showing where the club set up the borough Christmas tree on Third & Oak Sts. back in the 40s and 50s.

The display is located on the southwest corner of the town park (right next to the Anthracite Fire Company). There will be two deer, usually a doe and a fawn. The deer will be delivered sometime on the Friday morning after Thanksgiving by workers of the Lake Tobias Wildlife Park of Halifax, PA and will stay until around January 2nd.


A "Name the Deer" contest will be held so watch your local newspaper for instructions.  Cash prizes of $25.00 each will be awarded to the 2 best names.

The deer will be fed shelled corn and alfalfa hay.  The public is not permitted to feed the deer.

Special thanks go to the Jones Family for donating the hay, corn and alfalfa, and Jack Williams and the Anthracite Fire Company for supplying the electricity for the Christmas lights, and all the local merchants, civic organizations, and concerned citizens who donate the money to make all of this happen.

Lions J. Kevin Jones & Kathleen Hoffman are the co-chairmen of the deer display. 

Any donation will be greatly appreciated.
