Columbus Lions at St. Luke’s “Spring into a Healthy Summer”

Published 10:00 pm Sunday, May 18, 2014

The Columbus Lions Club will have a booth at the third annual “Spring into a Healthy Summer” sponsored by St. Luke’s Hospital. This year’s festival will be held on the Courthouse lawn in Columbus on Saturday, May 31. Rain date is June 7
The Lions will bring brooms for sale and a box to recycle your used eyeglasses and hearing aids. They will also share information about their activities designed to improve the quality of life for many Polk County citizens.
Columbus Lions lend used medical equipment to anyone who might need it: wheelchairs, walkers, bedside commodes, shower benches and transfer benches, crutches and canes. Other community services include providing eye exams and glasses for those who cannot afford them, Christmas baskets and a Spring luncheon for their Visually Impaired Persons (VIPs), a week of summer recreation at the Lions’ Camp Dogwood on Lake Norman and a VIP Fishing Tournament on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The Lions also support the Marjorie McCune Memorial Center, a retirement home in Black Mountain, N.C.
Those who would like to support any of these activities or participate in them, contact Lion President Fran Goodwin at 828-894-2505.
