Denton Lions Club Shrimp Boil
The Denton Lions Club Shrimp Boil is returning on Saturday, October 24, from 5:00 to 8 PM at the Denton Masonic Lodge on South Main Street. This will be a Take Out Only event.
There are two ways to get your Shrimp Boil to-go on Saturday — park and come in — please wear a mask and we will work with social distancing. Or you may head east on Peacock Avenue and stop at the side door of the Masonic Lodge and someone will bring it out to you.
You are encouraged to get your tickets in advance to be sure and guarantee you will have a plate.
Tickets are $20 per plate which will include 1lb of Shrimp with Kielbasa, Baked Potato, Slaw, and Dessert. There will be a limited number of plates prepared, so advance tickets are  strongly recommended to assure availability. Walks up will be  served until the excess shrimp is gone.
The Lions Club wishes to thank everyone for all the support during this difficult time. The money raised will allow us to continue to provide services to those in need.
Please contact any Lions Club member to purchase tickets or call Kirby Matthews at 336-803-1544.
