Special to Atmore News
At their September 20, club meeting, Atmore Lions had an opportunity to see the new Atmore Lions Club membership recruitment tool, a brochure telling what Lions do in the community. Broken down into four parts, the pamphlet tells how Lions Serve, Fund their own projects, Learn, and Grow.
Lions International focuses on vision care, diabetes, childhood cancer, and other humanitarian needs. The local club actively supports such projects as Camp Seale Harris, Little League, the local splash pad, Pilots for Christ, and Atmore Area Christian Care Ministry, which will be the recipient of the upcoming food drive in October. Projects such as these are supported by club fundraisers such as the spaghetti supper, golf tournament, and the mop and broom sale held at Williams Station Day and Mayfest. Community support of these fundraisers helps the Atmore Lions underwrite their projects.
Growing in membership is always important because it means more hands and hearts to do the work of Lions. The rewards are many as we see and hear from members who attend the service events, listen to speakers connected with the activities, and learn first-hand from people who have benefited from a Lions project. If you are interested in learning more about the Atmore Lions Club, contact Renee Hardy at United Bank. Take the opportunity to serve your community, the world, and your God as you help those in need. Become a Lion.
