Cosmos Lions Events and Activities

sshome7Fishing Contest

Typically held in February, the Saturday before Presidents' Day, at Thompson Lake. The tournament is for both youth and adults. The 2013 event was February 16. More than 100 youth and adults participated with fish being caught!

Check out the video from the 2010 event.

Community Theatre

Second weekend of March at the Cosmos Legion Club.

This year's (2013) performance was Daddy's Girl. There were three performances and each of the three events sold out, largely due to "Shirtless Bob." 
 

sshome5Pork Chop Feed

The Lions conduct their annual pork chop supper in April at the Cosmos Legion.

Cosmos Space Festival

The Lions are dedicated and long-time supporters of the Cosmos Space Festival which happens each year during the third weekend of July. The Lions sponsor the Kids' Pedal Pull and the Antique Tractor Pull.  In 2015, we also helped sponsor the first ever Disc Golf tournament at the Meeker County Park just a mile west of Cosmos.

Labor Day Softball Tournament

Held Labor Day weekend at the Cosmos Ball Fields.

This year's event is Sept. 5th and 6th, 2015 at the Cosmos ball field--which you can see from Highway 4!

Lions-AdopthighwayDitch Cleaning

The Cosmos Lions have been cleaning Highway 7 road ditches for more than two decades.  The club scours the ditches twice per year, going both east and west one mile from the 4 & 7 intersection. We have provided this service in spring and fall for the Minnesota Department of Transportation since 1990. 

Help a Lion, don't litter!
