Following lunch, members were encouraged to help with the Alabama Lions Sight eye exams at the Escambia County Health Department on November 17.
Joyce Petty was responsible for the program and her topic was the Christmas parade, especially the Lions Club float. A special tombola was held with all proceeds going to buy candy for the Christmas parade. Lion Willie Hawthorne was the winner and the $60 prize was donated back to the candy fund. Members are asked to help with the float on Nov. 28, 30, and Dec. 3.
