Temple Lions Park Amphitheater Dedication
The dream of many Temple residents came true on October 19, 2013 with the dedication of the Lions Sam Farrow Amphitheater in Temple Lions Park. The City of Temple, Temple Parks Foundation, and the Temple Lions Club Parks, Inc. partnered to make the amphitheater a reality. On the original site of the Temple Lions Pool, the amphitheater is a venue that may be leased from the City for outdoor events, concerts, plays, weddings, etc. Seating is on blankets or lawn chairs and approximately 350 cam be seated at the site.
The amphitheater is named in honor of Lion Sam Farrow. Sam is a 50 year member of the Temple Lions Club. He has sponsored more than 90 members into the club. Lion Sam led the audience in singing "God Bless America" as the finale of many of our annual Lions shows.
Mike Hamby, President of Temple Founder Lions Club presented Lion Sam with a Life Membership in Lions Clubs International. Congratulations, Lion Sam. A worthy tribute!!
The first performance at the amphitheater was done by The Eggmen of Austin, a Beatles-style band.
