Rockford Lions bug out

Climbing ladders and securing bolts, Lions Lynda Nance, Deck Andrjczak, Eleanor Palmer, Stan Home and Club President Dr. Chad Jackson join in taking on a task that loss of vision had made impossible for the owner.

On Saturday, April 24, the Rockford Lions met spring and spring bugs head-on by assembling and erecting a screen porch for one of Rockford’s vision-impaired neighbors.

Lions and their new Leo’s Youth Group have been busy this spring. Some 500 trees have been planted in the city and township with the help of the Boy Scouts, and a community health screening was held Saturday, April 28 at Rockford Reformed Church in conjunction with the Rockford Rotary Club. Last weekend, Rockford Lions were all around town conducting their annual White Cane Fundraiser. Besides their smiling “thanks,” be assured that 100% of your donation flows back to Rockford or supports an organization serving the vision-impaired.
