The Tualatin Lions are happy to announce that their annual German-style celebration of harvest time, “Oktoberfest,” is ON! And it’ll be safe! It’s “drive-through” Oktoberfest this year!
“Drive-Through” Oktoberfest will take place on Friday, Oct. 9 and Saturday, Oct. 10 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. each night in the driveway of the Tualatin Valley Elks Lodge, 8325 SW Mohawk Drive, Tualatin.
The Lions, with help from their Scouts of Troop 530 and Venture Scouts, will serve their traditional dinners of locally sourced Zenner brand German sausages, Willamette Valley sauerkraut, Hamburg style fries (salt and vinegar) and famous apfel kuchen (German-style apple cake made from local apples). All dinners will be served in a “touchless” fashion in biodegradable takeout containers.
Each dinner is $12 and the Lions can take cash, checks and, this year, credit cards. We’re sorry that we won’t be able to have local merchant raffles this year, but we will have our famous 50/50 raffle. A Lion will be ready to sell you a 50/50 ticket for only $5, take your name and contact info and, after the winning ticket is pulled at closing, 8 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 10, we’ll call you and you win 50% of the pot! The Tualatin Valley Elks Lodge will provide Beer Garden waiting for those 21 and older.
Dinner orders will be taken on Friday, Oct. 9 and Saturday, Oct. 10 at 971-832-9146, call or text or at the Lions email address, [email protected].
All funds raised at the 2020 Tualatin Lions Club “Drive-Through” Oktoberfest go to help our under-served neighbors receive help with sight and hearing saving surgery or treatment, exams and eyeglasses or hearing aids; state-of-the-art vision screening for local students; and exams and eyeglasses for those in need as well as support for local and regional food banks, the Tualatin Caring Closet, Scout Troop 530, pack 35 and the Venture Scouts. “If there’s a need, there’s a Lion”.
