The Sussex Lions Club is hosting its annual Piston & Rod Show this Saturday, and the weekend forecast looks impeccable.
Straight off the heels of Lions Daze, the Sussex Lions Club is hosting its annual Piston & Rod Show at Sussex Village Park on Saturday, and per usual, it's for a great cause. The community event is kicked off at 7 a.m. with an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast at the Lions Open Air Shelter in the park, followed by a slew of family-friendly activities, including a competition between area firefighters. “Basically, the firefighters in the area are going to compete to extract dummies out of crashed vehicles,” said organizer Rick Vodicka. “It’s a great competition.

The food pantry is in dire need of donations, so the Lions are stepping up to make it even easier to help families in need.
The Sussex and Lannon Lions Clubs are joining forces with Sussex-Area Outreach Services to remind people that Lions Daze this weekend is more than just a carnival, and it’s never been easier to help out while having fun. Jennifer Waltz, the director of SOS, says that the food pantry that feeds and clothes hundreds of area families is running low on supplies. One hundred percent of the proceeds from Lions Daze is donated to charity, so at the heart of the carnival lies the spirit of giving. “I just want to get it out there that the food pantry is beginning to run low on food,” Waltz said. “We are out of peanut butter, and other needed food items are: canned meat, rice sides, cans of fruit and juice. We also need baby formula, diapers and …

Sussex Patch reader Pam Anderson says she’s confused by the multiple schedule changes Lions Daze has gone through in the last couple years. “For years it (the parade) was held on Sunday at noon, and people would gather with their friends and families for an afternoon of fun; followed by the perfect end to a wonderful weekend...the fireworks!” explained Anderson in an email. “A few years ago, the fireworks …
