Kevin Gray Entertains at Lions Valentines Party

Our annual Valentines Party was a huge success. Lions and their guests were treated to a special meal prepared and served by the River Hills Country Club. As our special treat your program committee, Lions Fred Glickman, Dick Lewis and Chuck Beck, arranged for Kevin to provide us with his piano and singing talents with music from classical to Jerry Lee Lewis’ Great Balls of Fire.
