Lexington Lions Club is Member of the Week!
Written by Intern, Tristen Davidson
Happy 100th anniversary to the Lions Club! Established in 1917, the Lions Club has been serving the community in tremendous ways! Not only is the Lions Club the world's largest service club organization, but they have also donated over $1.25 million to community programs. The Lions Club covers many different service areas including diabetes, environment, hunger relief, pediatric cancer and vision.
With a focus on the blind, visually impaired, the deaf and hearing impaired, the Lions Club works to provide free vision and hearing screenings. They visit many schools in support of diabetes education and provide hundreds of pairs of eyeglasses to those in need every year.
When the Lexington Lions Club isn't hard at work providing free screenings, they are working with other people around the community. You can find members ringing bells for the Salvation Army, working with local veterans and providing food for the less fortunate. The Lexington Lions Club also provides annual scholarships for local high school graduates.
The annual Bluegrass Fair is coming up July 13-23, which serves as the Lions Club largest fundraiser. There are events for everyone at the Bluegrass Fair including rides for all ages, agricultural displays and competitions, the Miss Bluegrass Fair pageant, free entertainment and all the food you could imagine!
