RECENT SERVICE AND FUN
We collected donations for the Sight and Hearing Foundation on White Cane Day. Thanks to all who volunteered and donated! We were able to send $500 to the Foundation.
In 2017 Naches Lions loaned out over 400 pieces of medical equipment to folks throughout the valley. Wheelchairs, walkers and hospital beds were the most popular items. But there are many other types of equipment in this program... crutches, knee walkers, lift chairs, shower chairs and benches, canes, blood pressure cuffs, and much much more. This project, which has been ongoing for many years, was aided last year by a generous grant from the Yakama Nation Legends Casino.
The Veterans' Memorial at Depot Park is complete. A large American flag looks over the park, and is flanked by six more flag poles. Included on those are the flags of the United States Armed Services. Look here for pictures from the Dedication Ceremony on Veterans Day! Over 160 were in attendance.
Lions Clubs International celebrated their 100th Anniversary last summer! In 1917, Melvin Jones gathered friends and business associates in Chicago to form an organization committed to service. And Lions Clubs were born! At our dinner meeting in July, we had a birthday party to recognize this milestone. See the Gallery for a few pictures of the fun.
