Tioga County Lions clubs host impaired citizens for food, Bingo, entertainment, fun


(Owego, NY) – The Lions Clubs of Tioga County (Apalachin, Owego, Spencer-Candor, Tioga-Nichols and Waverly) held their bi-annual Ti-Li (Tioga Lions”) Social for visually and hearing impaired citizens on Saturday, July 30, at Owego American Legion Post 401. There were 17 guests and 20 Lions participating.

The guests are invited for lunch, entertainment and Bingo with fun prizes awarded, all provided by the Lions clubs on a shared basis at no cost to the guests. Lions also provided transportation for those needed it. Entertainment this time was Andy Turner.

The Ti-Li event has been held twice a year (usually March/April and July/August) since the mid-1980’s at various locations and has recently resumed following a hiatus due to COVID-19.

Lions are hoping to expand this event to eligible guests from Ithaca, Lansing and Newfield in the future. If you know of someone who may qualify and be interested in attending future Ti-Li Socials, please contact Lion Debbie Norton at [email protected] or Lion Bob Jensen at [email protected].
