Great story on positive karma. The DCTC Lions Club collected over 1300 pairs of brand new reading glasses that will be donated to those in need. How’d the club get them? The Lions did a fundraiser for the families of military veterans organization, Defending the Blue Line last April. One of their supporters in turn made some connections and donated the eyeglasses to the Lions. Lions Club International has a global network to get prescription eyeglasses to those who require aided vision but cannot afford it. Cool how positive karma works!
Thanks for all the support and help the Lions provided this year! What a wonderful year it was! To show our appreciation, the Lions Board had a end of the year appreciation BBQ at Lebanon Hills – and it was a hoot! Football, volleyball, Bocci Ball, and badminton following an awesome burger and brat BBQ. Good times! Hope to see many of you back next fall!
Sample over 25 different kinds of chili, with each one competing for a signed Minnesota Vikings jersey and other prizes. Only $4 buys you unlimited chili, a slice of cornbread, and a soda. The good times begin on Thursday, April 21, from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The Lions Club is donating $500 from its proceeds to Defending the Blue Line. Defending the Blue Line supports military families by providing financial help to cover costs of their children’s athletic equipment.
