Meadow Vista Lions Need You!

By Etta Gross, Secretary, Meadow Vista Lions Club

Have you ever wanted to help your neighbors and community?  The Meadow Vista Lion’s needs you.  There are many benefits of joining this well respected international service group.  You will be able to meet other amazing people, volunteer your skills, and network within your community, county, state, country and world wide.  As a Lion, you will help to better your community, help those with eye sight or vision problems, and contribute your ideas in helping others.

 Some of the local events you may recognize and could be involved with are: our annual Crab Feed, Mother’s Day Breakfast, Hot Dog Day at the local schools, the Easter Egg Hunt, Santa Comes to Town, White Cane day, See’s Candy sales, and other fundraising events such as a number of pancake breakfasts. 
 To become a member of the Meadow Vista Lions feel free to visit our regular meetings held on the second and fourth Wednesday night’s at the meadow Vista Grange Hall, located at 1121 Grange Road.  The starting time is 7 p.m. with dinner served.  (Dinner is prepared by fellow Lions club members, the cost is only $6 and beverages are extra)  We ask that you attend at least three of these meetings without any obligation to join.  Once you have chosen to become a member, the annual dues are $120. (There is a family plan discount when married couples join.) There is also a smaller one time membership fee for registering with International Lions, and buying a vest and name badge.

 If you would like additional information please contact a Meadow Vista Area Lion, Lion President Kurt Bleuel at (530) 885-4830, and Immediate Past Lion President Lion Mark Barbier at Meadow Vista True Value Hardware (530) 878-0484.
