Donna Prince: Higgins Lions center open to community events

Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service organization with over 1.4 million members. Their motto is “We Serve,” and the members of Higgins Diggins Lions Club did just that on Sept. 19.

Fifteen members spent the day cleaning up the grounds that surround the Roy Peterson Building at the Higgins Lions Community Center, located on East Hacienda Drive, near Bear River High School in Southern Nevada County.

Work included pruning shrubs and trees, weed whacking the grounds, cleaning the parking lot, hauling away debris and replacing old water lines with water saving ones.

Since 1994 the hall has been used by the community to host a variety of public and private events including town hall meetings, weddings, anniversary parties, family reunions, pancake breakfasts, FFA banquets, wine tastings, crab feeds and much more.

The 4,000 square foot hall is available for rent year round, and will comfortably seat up to 175 guests. A large, licensed commercial kitchen is also available for an additional charge. Use of the adjacent 2,000 square foot garden area is included in the rental fee, and is perfect for ceremonies for up to 100 seated guests. The Higgins Diggins Lions will provide full bar service for any event involving adult beverages, for an additional fee.

For availability and more rental information call 530-268-3782 or
