The Glennville Lions Club bucket drive, held on Saturday, April 9 at the corner of Hwy. 301 and Barnard Street, yielded a record $1,700 for the club.

“This is the most ever raised in a bucket drive held by our club, and we are overwhelmed by the generosity of so many who supported this drive as well as those Glennville Lions who devoted their Saturday morning to this fundraiser,” Glennville Lions Club President Pastor Rick Cason said.

The Lions Club provides eye exams and eyeglasses for local children who may need them and may not be able to afford them.  Lions Clubs also collect used prescription glasses that can be reused, especially in many of the medical mission trips to other countries.  Hearing aids is another expansion of Lion Club services, once again to the needy.

If you are interested in joining the Glennville Lions Club, their hour luncheon meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of the month at 12 p.m. at The Farmhouse Restaurant on Hwy. 301 S. The next meeting is April 28.  All are welcome.
