It's official! On February 17, 2024, the Russell Lions Club's next Roast Victim will be none other than our Mayor Pierre Leroux!

Now, hold on! How can you roast Mayor Pierre? Isn't he as "clean as the driven snow"? Well, not unlike the snow after it has been pushed around our Township streets, the Mayor might not end up coming out clean... especially after the Lions and our roasters get through with him!

What's in store for Mayor Pierre? Those who've witnessed our roasts in the past know that it will be a fun filled evening... for attendees. Maybe not so much for the Mayor as he will not only be in the 'hot seat', but he might even go to jail that night in our Jail & Bail portion of the evening!

There will be a prime rib buffet dinner, live auction and a slew of local personalities there roasting Mayor Pierre!

Want to be there when it all goes down? Get your tickets today! Here's how:
