OWEN - The Owen-Withee Lions club will hold their 20th Annual Ice Fishing Contest at the Mill Pond Park and the Old School, Owen, on March 6, from noon until 3 p.m. The event returns after being cancelled due to COVID concerns last year.

The usual large number of prizes will be awarded throughout the afternoon. Raffles, food and refreshments will be available in the Old School building across the street. There will be indoor games for kids under 12.

The O-W Lions Club supports many local projects and events such as the Owen Mill Pond revitalization, the Withee Ball Park upgrade, Withee Tennis Court Fence, youth football, baseball, basketball team supplies and food pantry donations, community Halloween, Christmas and Easter parties and local benefits.

The club annually supports the Wisconsin Lion’s Camp, which offers a free camping experience for worthy kids. Support of state, national and worldwide initiatives which help with disaster relief and problems related to vision, hearing and diabetes are a part of the club’s activities. The O-W Lions have recently donated to a childhood cancer initiative to benefit Wisconsin cancer centers.
