Our all day music festival will feature seven different bands, most from Yorktown, local vendors, rides for the kids, food and hay rides by the Yorktown tractor club. It promises to be a fun day for all.”

The Yorktown chapter of Lions International was founded in 1960. It is comprised of local members of the community who serve to make a difference in the lives of their neighbors, with an emphasis on the vision impaired. Some of the community events sponsored by the club include the Halloween Parade and Carnival, Santa visits to special needs children, Summer Concerts at the Jack DeVito Veterans Memorial Field, and the Yorktown Easter Egg Hunt. Also, the Lions work with Guiding Eyes for the Blind, My Brother Vinny, the Montrose VA, local food banks, Support Connection, and the Yorktown schools in the form of the Leos (the youth version of the Lions) and four yearly high school scholarships.
