EAST LIVERPOOL - King Lion Robert Allgood called the meeting to order and Lion Jim Lewis opened the Lions Club meeting in song.
Lion Marilyn Wolfe said prayer.
Upcoming events include ringing the bell on Dec. 8th at JCPenny for the Salvation Army. The current fundraiser is a basket of cheer. Tickets are $3 a piece and the basket includes various items for Christmas Dinner.
Lion Dr. Roxanne Burns introduced Breana Smith and Christina Fidurski, who presented the program about the Kent State East Liverpool campus Dr. Lydia Rose's Sociology class community project. One of their projects was visiting a daycare and teaching them about recycling and how using items from nature can be fun. They completed projects where they made bird feeders and turkeys from pine cones, pet rocks and learned the differences between plastics and paper for recycling.
King Lion Allgood closed the meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance.
Next meeting will be at noon, Dec. 7th at the Salvation Army for the club sponsored annual Children's Christmas Party.
Please contact any lion member, or attend a meeting if interested in becoming a member of the East Liverpool Lions Club.
Calcutta Lions Club
CALCUTTA - Past President, Gary Freeh, of the Lions Club recently refinished the eyeglass collection box located inside Giant Eagle of Calcutta.
Eyeglass recycling is one of the Lions' most popular activities. Although the program was officially adopted by the association in 1994, Lions have been collecting glasses for more than 80 years.
Refractive errors can be easily corrected with eyeglasses, yet millions in developing nations lack access to basic eye care services. Lions have recognized the urgent need for corrective lenses and continue to lend their support to the Lions Recycle for Sight Program.
Please donate old glasses at Giant Eagle or at Calcutta Square or wherever you see one of our recycling stands.
