BACKUS — The Backus Lions will host their annual garage sale fundraiser from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, June 2, and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 3, indoors at the Church of the Nazarene community center, The Beacon, on Highway 371 in Backus.

The Backus Lions support a variety of projects in the Backus area and the Pine River-Backus School District. Monies raised at various Lions projects throughout the summer and fall are used to support student scholarships and other requests from PR-B School for events that need funding to cover expenses.

Other fundraisers the Backus Lions hold are the fly-in pancake breakfast, the peach sale and a fall craft and bake sale.

The Godfrey’s store allows the Lions to use their parking lot for their Polish Stand from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
