The amazing Lions clubs and individuals from District 39W and 39E have to date raised approximately $4,100.00 in support of the Lions Winter Camp for the Blind. This ongoing effort in generating the funds needed to cover state educational shortfalls allows these children to participate in an annual event they so look forward to year in and year out. There are over 20 students now signed up as of today. For those who would like to go up and spend a day or all weekend (March 5th-7th) please contact Lion Walt Cochran at 208-316-9340. Hope to see you there!! Always proud to be a Lion, DGE Lion Pat
Every now and then, but not nearly often enough, someone brings a great Lions club event or project to my attention. Today I want to pass along a project that's been going on for 48 years. Since 1965 the Twin Falls Lions Club has been parking cars at the Twin Falls County Fair. This involves a lot more than just directing traffic. It begins with 12 acres of pasture that the Lions section off into rows for parking and lanes for driving. They pound steel posts into the ground for markers, direct cars where to park, and attend the lot throughout the 6 day fair. But it's not over until the lot is cleaned up and restored to its original condition, 10 days after they drove in the first stake. It somehow doesn't look like all work and no play! Congratulations to PDG Don Rahe who has been the Fair Parking Chairperson for the last 10 years for another successful project!
