Lions supports the community

Have you ever seen the Lions float during July 4 parade in Scottsville? Or watched rubber ducks floating down the James River during the duck derby on community day or stopped to get a treat on Halloween in town at the Lions table?

The Scottsville Lions Club is an active civic organization that provides eyeglasses and hearing aids to the community.

The club supports the Boys and Girls Club, All God’s Children, provides dictionaries to the Scottsville and Yancy fourth graders, sponsors a little league team, donates to the Scottsville Elementary PTA, sponsors good citizen awards at schools and donates to disaster relief funds throughout the country.

The organization prides itself on being one of the few groups that give 100 percent of its fundraising monies back to the community. Members pay dues that pay for any clerical or administrative expenses.

The Scottsville Lions Club invites you to come join or observe a meeting at the Scottsville United Methodist Church on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m.

If you know of anyone who needs assistance in purchasing hearing aids or glasses or if you have any questions about joining the group, contact President Robert Keeton at (434) 953-2294.
