Contact Glenwood Lions Club to help community organizations


June 20, 1996|By Sally Buckler | Sally Buckler,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

THE LIONS CLUB of Glenwood helps our community by raising money, donating it to local charities and organizations and having fun in the process.

In the last fiscal year, the club gave more than $18,000 to groups, mostly in western Howard County. Among the recipients are the Boy Scout troops at Poplar Springs and West Friendship, girls baseball and basketball teams, the West County Senior Center, the Glenelg High School Band and several local 4-H clubs.

In keeping with the tradition of Lions Club support for sight and hearing, the club gave more than $6,000 to Vision Assistance and Research.

Glenwood Lions Club raises most of its money at its Howard County Fair snack bar, open during the August fair, and puts it to use at several other events during the year.

Since 1954, the Glenwood Lions have contributed almost $300,000 to local groups from snack bar profits. Local residents, including members of the groups that receive Lions Club funds, help operate the snack bar.

You can help by calling Jim Pfefferkorn at 489-9649, Win Robb at 489-4445, Bob Pardoe at 442-2940 or Tom Pardoe at (301) 854-6828.

Straight A's

Heather Claycomb always wanted to get a report card full of A's.

During the last quarter of the long school year that ended yesterday, Heather, a junior at Glenelg High School, worked hard, even though she was tempted to relax, as many students are.

Working hard paid off. Heather earned straight A's.
