In 1986, the Liberty Lions Club held a meeting with a Texas Sesquicentennial theme. The meeting was held on October 27, 1986 and a costume contest was held. Everyone appeared to have a good time. There were many excellent costumes and the selection of the winners was very difficult. The ladies that received the most votes were:
Del Rae LaFour - 1st
Dorothy Shoaf - 2nd
Bonnie Steed - 3rd
Lona Odum - 4th
Mary Thornton - 5th
Bonnie Steed and Lona Odum got the same number of votes. Fortunately we had a "Saloon Gambler" (Lion Mark McClelland) with us who had a deck of cards with him. Bonnie drew and Ace and Lona drew a King. Remember not to play cards with those two ladies.
The gentlemen that received the most votes were:
Lion John Menville - 1st
Lion Bobby T. White - 2nd
Winners received prizes.
