The Red Boiling Springs Lions Club hosted another one of their regular events, a pancake breakfast, this past Saturday morning, February 23. Lions Club International is the world’s largest service club organization with 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members. Its members do whatever is needed to help their local communities with their mission motto being: We Serve. The Lions are in 207 countries, in hospitals and senior centers, in regions battered by natural disaster, in schools and eyeglass recycling centers. The Lions are doing community volunteer work, helping, and leading, planning and supporting communities. The RBS Lions Club is currently working on several community service projects and fundraisers so they can give back to the community.
One project they have completed is their Holiday cookbook. The cookbooks can still be purchased for $5.00 at the Macon Bank and Trust in RBS or by calling Dan or Glenda Cohen at 615-699-3500. They recently provided the dessert at the RBS Basketball banquet. The RBS Lions Club have also donated to the Palace Care and Rehab Bingo night and are hoping to purchase portable CD players for the residents who were not able to attend the bingo night. The club has several events in the near future including a bake sale on March 30th beginning at 7:30 a.m. at Bill Martins in RBS.
They are also planning a community talent show at the Willette Community Center Building on April 27 (more details will be announced at a later date). The club will also be sponsoring a $500.00 scholarship that will be given to a RBS High School Student with criteria based on community service, grades, and need. During the pancake breakfast on February 24, the RBS Lions Club presented the RBS Jr. High Softball with a $225.00 donation to purchase matching t-shirts for their team.
President Dan Cohen hopes these events will allow them to give to the community of Red Boiling Springs and to the local area school and sports. The club is always looking for new members and President Cohen encourages anyone interested in joining the RBS Lions club to attend a meeting to see what the club is about. The meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month at 5:30 p.m. Meetings are held at the Armour Hotel in Red Boiling Springs with dinner served by hotel owners Dennis and Debbie Emery.
