Every year, the Wolcott Lions host a number of popular events for the people in town. In early summer, the Wolcott Lions sponsor an event called ?Project Elderly. Members of the Wolcott Lions Club turn out in large numbers to put on a picnic lunch/barbeque for the senior citizens in town complete with a fun-filled game of bingo in the afternoon. In late summer, the Wolcott Lions provide our town with a time and place to celebrate as one big family at the Wolcott Country Fair. Begun in 1979, the Wolcott Country Fair became the clubs major fundraiser replacing almost 30 years of light bulb sales. Now 30+ years later, the Wolcott Country Fair brings over 30,000 people to the beautiful town of Wolcott over the course of the annual 3-day event. The Wolcott Country Fair has achieved ?major fair status  the highest classification given by the Association of Connecticut Fairs. This means our attendees will be treated to an excellent and educational time. The Wolcott Lions recently purchased a 20+ acre wooded parcel of land with a large pond. With well over twice the size of the current fairgrounds, we are working to build a bigger, more beautiful fair. In the fall, the annual Wolcott Lions Pancake Breakfast is well received by townspeople with proceeds going towards our annual scholarships. A new event called the ?Winter Wonderland was started in 2002 with a single goal in mind  to give back to the community that supports us by attending our events all year long. The Winter Wonderland is held on our new fairgrounds and features a horse-drawn wagon or (weather-permitting) sleigh ride, seasonal music, hot chocolate, hot cider, coffee, hot dogs, Christmas cookies and a special visit by Santa Claus. While this event is totally free to the community, we do ask for new unwrapped toys or a non-perishable food item. These are then distributed by the Wolcott Lions within our community the following weekend as part of the Toys for Tots? and Food for the Needy programs.
