Waterman Lions Summerfest and Antique Tractor & Truck Show


Thank you sponsors and volunteers!

Our sponsors and volunteers contribute cash and other resources such as labor, supplies, and use of equipment. These are needed and appreciated very much. The Waterman Lions Club conducts this event as a community enrichment and fund raising project. Donations from sponsors are used to help fund this affordable family fun day at Waterman Lions park for the community and surrounding area. Any surplus goes to funding other Waterman Lions projects. We feel our supporters should be recognized, and we place a high priority in this area. Download the sponsor form (pdf) for more information. The Waterman Lions Club has 501(3)(c) exemption status. This page will be updated for 2017 as we approach show time.
