Among the purposes of Lions Clubs is to take an active interest in the civic, cultural, social and moral welfare of the community. In the history of Lions since 1917 this has meant involvement in programs designed to improve our communities, aid the blind and visually impaired, organize youth programs and work with community and environmental projects. At our next Lions Club meeting on Thursday, May 22nd our guest speaker will be Regina Chaney with the Van Buren County Cooperative Extension Service speaking on Community Wellness. “According to Van Buren County health rankings, 66% of residents are overweight or obese, 37% are completely sedentary, 31% have arthritis, and 11% are diabetic. Dinner will be served at 5:30 pm with the regular meeting and our speaker following at 6 pm. Guests are always welcome and dinner reservations or Lions Club information is available by calling Lion Jeanie Hooper @ 884-3202.
