During the past financial year ending 30 June 2013 the Fairfield Bay Lions donated nearly $8000. towards various charitable and youth programs here in the area. But of that amount over 50% was utilized in providing eye exams and glasses for area residents needing assistance. By living our motto of “We Serve” the FFB Lions try and follow the request of Helen Keller to be Knights for the blind. At our next regular meeting on Thursday March 27, Lion Cindy Wellenberger who chairs our eyesight program will provide an overview of what services are provided and the financial requirements to support our efforts.
Our next meeting will also feature a POT LUCK dinner which will begin at 5:30 p.m. followed by a short meeting and our featured speaker, Lion Cindy at 6 p.m. If you need information regarding the pot luck please contact our Lion 1st Vice President Jean Hooper @ 884-3202.
