“Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world. Our 1.35 million members – who perform community service in 208 countries and geographic areas – are different in many ways, but share a core belief; community is what we make it. When you join Lions, you join a global service network. So, at the same time your doing local community service, you can also contribute to Lions volunteer efforts around the world. From providing health programs that focus on hearing loss, to supporting efforts to control and prevent diabetes, Lions volunteers are working to improve the health of children and adults around the globe. We want everyone to see a better tomorrow. That’s why we support sight programs and services, including vision screenings, eye banks and eyeglass recycling. If you’re interested in volunteering, leading projects, networking and having fun – you can do all of this and more as a Lions Club member.” (www.lionsclubs.org), For more information on becoming a Fairfield Bay Lion or attending one of our meetings please contact our Membership Chair, Lion Mary Meadows @ 884-6388 or any Fairfield Bay Lion member. Happy Halloween from your Fairfield Bay Lions Club.
