President Hardy reminded members about Taste of the South Thursday, September 21, where Lions will be selling water and passing out membership brochures.
The annual food drive will be October 21 from 8 until noon at Walmart, followed by our mop and broom sales at Williams Station Day on October 28.
New business included club shirts for the Leos at Escambia County High School, the Christmas parade on December 9, and a donation to LCIF. Lion Kevin Garrett gave an update on the Lions Eye Screening Bus which will be at Williams Station Day. The community can be screened, and if they have a problem, can go to a follow up at the Site Mobile unit which will be at the Health Center on November 17.
Kerra Mascaro introduced Patricia Cross from We Are Family Senior Care Service who spoke to the group about the non-profit group which was formed to meet the need for safe and affordable in-home non-medical services to residents in the Atmore area.
