Monroe Lions Club Biggest Event of the Year
Wednesday, October 31, 2007 3:26:30 PM - Monroe Ohio

by Bob Bretland

This is the largest fund raiser for the Monroe Lions Club (we also sell roses in the spring).

I was asked what the Lions Club does for the community. The mission of the Monroe Lions Club is to support the local community and to actively participate in sight related projects and programs. Some of our annual projects and community support are:

- 4 scholarships every year to Monroe High School Seniors
- sponsorship of a local youth baseball team
- annual Easter Egg hunt at the park
- eye exams for grade school kids that can't afford them
- eye bank of Western Ohio (cornea transplants)
- eyeglasses for local citizens with special needs
- advertising in the football program
- collection of eyeglasses (for redistribution in foreign countries)
- Canine Companions for Independence (seeing eye dogs)
- diabetes awareness programs
- Adopt-A-Highway program (Main St in Monroe)

We use all proceeds from our fund raisers to support these and other projects. We strive to be good stewards of your donations and we always try to stretch the dollars we earn as far as they will go.

We hope that you will consider supporting our Pancake breakfast this year. Your support has always been greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
