The King Lions Club will hold its annual fundraising raffle on Oct. 22 at West Stokes High School. This year’s grand prize will be a 2015 John Deere Gator 4×4. Door prizes will also be awarded and a meal will be served for ticket purchasers. The grand prize gator is on display in downtown King.
The King Lions Club is proudly committed to community service projects in conjunction with the International Lions Foundation Centennial Service Challenge. The 2015-2017 officers include: Bill Southern, president; Derek Edwards, 1st vice president; Dr. Candace Fix, 2nd vice president; Ken Lyda, 3rd vice president; Rhonda Childress, Secretary; Robin Horne, Treasurer; Jack Warren, Peggy Slate, Penny Boyles, and Dillard Burnette, Directors.
The King Lions Club’s commitment to service for King and Stokes County is focused on three main focal points: youth projects; services to the visually impaired; and community improvements.
Over the course of the next two years this will serve as their framework for assisting the communities they live in and to honor the Centennial Service Challenge. For nearly 100 years, Lions have served their communities with dedication and contributed to the development and well-being of millions of people around the world.
Lions worldwide are encouraged to help reach the Centennial Service Challenge goal of serving 100 million people by June 2018 by planning projects through the following Centennial Service Challenge Campaigns.
As always, the King Lions Club provides handcrafted brooms for purchase as well. Please see any member of the King Lions Club to purchase.
The King Lions Club meets the second and fourth Tuesday of the month at 5:30PM at Little Italy in King.
