First, exercise six days a week; second, quit eating food that is bad for you; and third, care, commit and connect to others. The Lions feel they have the third step covered, but the other two – maybe not so much.

The Columbus Lions meet on the first and third Thursday evenings at Calvert’s Restaurant in Columbus, and they encourage anyone interested in community service to visit with them.
