The Norwich Lions Club Meadow Muffins contest is a popular annual tradition, whereby participants “buy” one or more numbered plots of land in a fenced-in area for $20 each, for which an assigned, randomized number matching a corresponding “deed” has been assigned to each plot.
On August 13, some heifers will be brought into an enclosure with the plots laid out in a grid to determine the winner and runner-up by depositing a “meadow muffin” on the squares of two lucky prize recipients!
First Prize: Up to $1000 (10% of gross receipts) -- 1 in 500 (or better) chance of winning.
Second Prize: Up to $500 (5% of gross receipts) -- 1 in 499 (or better) chance of winning
Third Prize: The satisfaction that you contributed to a good cause! (up to 498 in 500 chances)
If you are a winner, you will be notified by email or phone. The order of your purchase, as invoiced by by 32 Auctions, determines which deed you have purchased.
Three impartial judges will be appointed to oversee the contest. In case circumstances prevent a meadow muffin deposit from determining the winners on the appointed date, the judges will draw the winning numbers from among the tickets sold. In case of errors in the sale of the Meadow Muffins, the judges will determine a fair outcome.
The contest raises funds to support community organizations, as described at www.norwichlionsclub.org and summarized, below.

Norwich, June 3, 2023. As part of the Norwich Women’s Club recognition of Bonnie Munday, retired Norwich Town Clerk, as citizen of the year, the Norwich Lions Club awarded her membership in the Melvin Jones Fellowship (MJF) for her year-to-year work in promoting the Lions Club Memory Tree, a December fundraising campaign to benefit the Upper Valley Haven—a non-profit, private organization that serves people struggling with poverty by providing food, shelter, education, service coordination, and other support.
The MJF is the backbone of the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), and is awarded in recognition of major donations to the foundation or to people who have recently made a notable contribution to the club’s activities. It’s a tremendous contribution to humanity and to the legacy of our founder, Melvin Jones.
