Members of the Youngstown Lions Club will take to the streets of Youngstown, corner of Main and Lockport streets, on Saturday and Sunday, June 16 and 17, to raise funds as part of the annual "White Cane Day." Funds donated by community members will be used to further the cause of the Lions mission of "We Serve."
"Money raised on June 16 and 17 will allow Lions to meet pressing needs in our community including sight and hearing conservation, scholarships and various community events such as the annual Easter Egg Hunt," says Lion John MacArthur, White Cane Day chairman of the Youngstown Lions Club. "Lions members thank everyone who contributes to this important work. You are truly helping Lions make a difference in our community."
He notes the Youngstown Lions Club has 32 members and meets on the first Tuesday of the month, September through June at 7 p.m. at Ray's Tavern on Lake Road. Lions clubs are comprised of men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfill those needs.
