Behind the scenes of the Annual Lions Club Basketball Tournament

The Annual Lions Club Tournament appears to go off without a hitch each year, but that begs the question: What goes into this event, behind the scenes, that makes it such a success each year?

The answer is hours and hours of volunteer hours from Lions Club members and community members, alike.

Jack Berg, president of the Lions Club, is the main man when it comes to getting the ball rolling for the tournament.

“It really starts primarily with Jack, the Lions Club provides the bulk of the volunteers, but Jack has always been the contact.
