Fried squirrel or elk burger? Lions feast serves up game for charity

Grilled or fried, the wild game served up Saturday in Grassland by the Williamson County Lion's Club was top notch. Deer, wild turkey, squirrel, and elk were all the rage. And the homemade white beans, fried potatoes, Southern-style green beans and unlimited iced tea and desserts made this lunch the best buy in town for $10.
Funds raised from the morning and afternoon feast will help fund the continued expansion and maintenance of the Lion's Club's unique Sensory Garden for the Blind, located behind Grassland Elementary School off Manley Lane. The garden is open throughout the year for people of all ages, who need a quiet but multi-sensory laden place to share a peaceful and educational experience. 
Club members are looking forward to a future expansion that includes an interactive Imagination Discovery playground and a new rose garden. Community support and corporate support made this park an exceptional part of the Grassland community. 
Support from Williamson Medical Center, Williamson County Parks and Recreation and Vanderbilt University Medical Center made this possible. Volunteers, boys scouts, and Lions Club members spent hundreds of hours creating the elaborate courtyard and gardens.
