MC Name the Deer contest

These are the two deer in this year’s Mount Carmel Name the Deer contest. What would you name them? To participate in the contest, go to Hollywood Pizza, Academy Sports Center or Matlow’s and fill out an entry form. A $25 prize will be awarded to each of the winners.

MOUNT CARMEL — The Mount Carmel Lions Club, thanks to many generous donations, once again has brought live deer to Mount Carmel. The Name the Deer contest has begun to name the two deer, which are in a pen in Town Park.

Boxes will be out for the next two weeks inside Hollywood Pizza, Academy Sports Center and Matlow’s. Entries selected will each receive $25 from the Lions Club.

The Lions would like to acknowledge Jack Williams Sr. and the Anthracite Fire Co. for their help, as well as donations from the West End Athletic Club toward Lions’ December projects, such as the deer display and holiday meals.

Lion Kathleen Hoffman, of Family Home Medical, chairs the committee. Other committee members are Lions J. Kevin Jones and Mike Magennis. The Lions hope to bring the borough tree to town next Wednesday and will participate in the Santa parade at 1 p.m. Saturday in downtown Mount Carmel.
