Summertime is just around the corner. Is your Inner-Griller itching to get out? Have we got some fun for you!

The Sedalia Lions Club’s annual Blues, Cruise, and BBQ is just weeks away. This year we’re doing so much more. There will be fun for everyone. Everyone knows that someone who proclaims they’re a ‘Master Griller’, now’s your chance make it official. This will be a great event and a super time to mingle with other local business owners, grill, drink cold refreshments, enjoy the outdoors with Music, Smoke, and Friends. If you don’t want to compete and just want to eat and enjoy the night, The Sedalia LIONS will be serving their WORLD FAMOUS (we live in a small world here) BBQ and all the trimmings! Make a day out of it and spend it with the LIONS!
