Super Pull raises bar of success

"Sunday was maybe a bit of a disappointment as far as attendance, however it was a new experience for us and we'll learn from it.

"I feel that this was one of our best events ever considering the challenges we faced. I swell with pride just seeing how the Lions Club and all the community responded."
