Organizers said, “As Helen Keller’s Knights of the Blind, the Lions Club funds glasses and hearing aids for those in our community who cannot afford them. We also install wheelchair lifts and have a loan closet for those with health challenges. The funds raised will further these efforts.”

Dinners will be ready at 11 a.m. at the Barker Lions Building on Main Street. Presale dinners are held until 1 p.m.

The Barker Lions are also continuing an American flag sale. Each 3-foot-by-5-foot nylon flag was made by the visually impaired at the Olmsted Center. The price is $29. The flags will be available during the chicken barbecue or by using the contact information above.
