The King Lions Club sponsored a successful Spring Clean Up Day in and around the City of King on Saturday, April 2. Lions on hand at Central Park in King distributed trash bags and gloves and collected more than 10 full size bags of litter in the club’s commitment to keep King beautiful.
The Lions Club also honored Mrs. Dorothy Campbell at the April 12 meeting. Mrs. Campbell attended Camp Dogwood for the visually impaired in 2015 and will again be sponsored by the King Lions Club in 2016. Hope Sprinkle with the Stokes County Department of Social Services also attended and provided insight on services offered to the visually impaired in Stokes County.
The King Lions Club is proudly committed to community service projects like Spring Clean 2016 and Camp Dogwood in conjunction with the International Lions Foundation Centennial Service Challenge. For over 50 years the King Lions Club has sponsored activities that emphasize our motto: “We Serve.” The first stop light in King, Recreation Acres, and the King Fire Department are all projects led by the Lions Club.
The King Lions Club will also sponsor a booth at Meet Me on Main on May 14 in Downtown King. All are invited to stop in to enjoy treats for all ages, purchase a broom or raffle ticket, or see the projects our Lions Club is committed to in King.
The King Lions Club meets the second and fourth Tuesday of the month at 5:30PM at Little Italy in King. They welcome new members and guests to attend. They can be found online at www.kinglionsclub.org or on Facebook.
