BRASHER FALLS - The Quad Town Lions Club of the Brasher, Lawrence, Stockholm, Hopkinton communities invites you to join and make a difference.
The Quad Town Lions Club is seeking civic-minded men and women to join them in making a difference in the community. The club is hosting an information session on Nov. 9 for people who want to learn more about the club and its work.
The club gives members an opportunity to advance worthy causes, serve with friends, and become leaders in the community. This club means a lot to our Lions, but it means so much more to the people we serve.
The information session will be held from 2 - 4 p.m. Nov. 9 at the American Legion, Post 514, Winthrop.
Events for the day are as follows: membership information, Tri-Town Christmas Basket donation presentation, free eye screening for children ages 6 months to 6 years, eye glass collection: bring your used eye glasses to donate to those in need, and sleep apnea information from a Canton-Potsdam Hospital representative. Refreshments will be served.
The Quad Town Lions encourages the public to come out and learn more about the clubs work.
We want to share the great things were doing in the community, and let others know how they can help, The Lions motto is We Serve, and the Quad Town Lions has lived up to it. For nine years, the club has performed eye screenings to local children to identify sight problems as early as possible and to prevent blindness, a release from the club noted.
The club works with local eye care providers and pays for an eye exam and helps with the purchase of glasses for qualifying adults and children. We collect and distribute used eye glasses, according to the release.
We helped fund the St. Lawrence Central Elementary playground and helped establish a handicapped accessible picnic area and playground at the Tri Town Recreation Association. We also purchased a gas fire place for the residents at LBSH. The club collects and donates books to St. Lawrence Central School. We donate to local community needs such as the food pantries and the Tri- Town Christmas Basket fund. We also donate nationally and internationally to those in need, they noted.
