Lions Club hosting music contest

-A +A
If you’re into performing music, listen up. The Loomis Lions Club is sponsoring local vocal and instrumental students in the World of Talent Contest being held by the Lions Clubs of District 4C5. Scholarships of $500 will be awarded to each of the top three finalists in three divisions: ages 8 to 12, 13 to 16, and 17 to 20. The nine finalists will perform from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 21, at the International Food Festival in Folsom. Scholarships will be awarded at that time. Last year, Heidi Astle, Megan Gentes and Jordan Held — sponsored by the Loomis Lions — were among the nine scholarship winners. Entry deadline at the local level is Wednesday, May 1. Students must submit a CD or DVD, along with a photograph. For an application, contact Ron Jones, a Loomis Lion, at 412-7758.
