The Vergas Lions Club announced it will discontinue bar services.

The Lions Club held its meeting at the same time as the Vergas City Council meeting on Tuesday, March 8. A few members of the do-good service organization came into the council chambers and made the announcement.

In a phone call after the city council meeting, Vergas Lions Club President Mary Ditterich explained the club made its decision and is working with the city, but has no further details at this time.

During the city council meeting, Vergas City Clerk Julie Lammers explained any businesses with a catering license would be insured to provide the bar amenity at an event.
