Columbus Lions celebrate liberty

Published 12:17 pm Monday, April 18, 2011

Columbus Lions Garland Goodwin, Roger Newman and Jim Diggs have taken Sheriff Donald Hill, Clerk of Superior Court Charlene Owens, and County Commissioners Cindy Walker and Ted Owens to various schools this year. The students have been attentive, inquisitive and appreciative. Booklets are given to fourth, eighth and twelfth graders each year. North Carolina Lions celebrate liberty in local schools by having an elected representative tell about his/her participation in the government before distributing booklets containing the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States to students and teachers. Lions strive to be good citizens and encourage young people to become responsible citizens as well through an understanding of the basis for our freedoms and liberty. For more information call Lion Goodwin at 828-894-2505. Above, County Commissioner Ted Owens addresses fourth grade classes at Polk Central Elementary School. (photo submitted)
