Default Lion Drinking fountain

Anybody have a clue where I could find one of these? I'm a member of the local Lions Club. It would be cool to put on in a new park in town

I don't know what they cost, but i know who made them. Guess you'd have too contact them.

First is their website, second is their photo stream.

Good to see a fellow Lion on here. I've been a Lions club member for a little over a year. I was in charge of our small town's Halloween Parade. I have a few more grey hairs from that, lol. We are going to pick up Christmas trees Saturday that we sell for a fundraiser. We have a "Secret Santa" program where we give gift certificates from the local grocery store to needy families and a toy drive.

I'd also like to find something like this.


The good costumes are SO expensive. This one is $700

The suit part could be made pretty cheap. It's the head that costs alot. Some of the mascot costumes go for over $1000.
I guess it just costs a lot to get (a) good head.

Hey thanks slowmotion, I am memeber of the Heights Lions, Carlsbad, New Mexico, (37 members I think). We specialize in building wheelchair ramps and installing wheelchair lifts on vehicles for the locals in need. We also specialize in deocrating the river island for Christmas on the Pecos (river). It is a huige even that brings people from thousands of miles to ride the two ferrys up and down the river looking at all the amazing light shows the (very rich) river residents put up every year! Something everyone should see at least once in a lifetime. I have my work cut out for me tonight and all day tomorrow! Jim
