The Atmore Lions Club met January 15, in Mayson Auditorium in Atmore Community Hospital. Lion President Bub Gideons opened the meeting with prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance.
Lion Candace Wooten introduced Sheila Helton as the meeting’s speaker. Helton, who is a long-time member of Atmore Area Christian Care Ministry, told the group about needs families in Atmore have and how AACCM helps those families. Her talk included a history of the group from its inception in 2001, how it has changed over the years, as well as some of its future plans.
Overall plans for the district meeting to be held in Atmore March 27-28, including the Strides Walk, were presented. February 5 will be a planning meeting with no scheduled program and members were asked to come ready to present ideas for Lions Club projects for the upcoming year.
