The Campbell County Lions Club thanks everyone who contributed to our successful July 9 road block held in downtown LaFollette.

The $850 raised at the roadblock will go a long way to support Lion activities in Campbell County as well as our neighbors in East Tennessee who recently lost their homes to tornadoes. A portion of the funds will purchase beds for the tornado victims. 

The Campbell County Lions Club provides many services to local residents including: free vision screening for pre-school children, free eyeglasses for those in need, and support of the large-print and audio book programs at county libraries.

Club youth programs include sponsorship of a Diabetes Awareness Contest in the fifth and eighth grades to raise family awareness about diabetes, and sponsorship of a Peace Poster Contest in the middle schools to encourage young people to artistically express their vision of world peace.

The Campbell County Lions Club also provides financial assistance for youth to attend summer camps and other special events.

The Lions Club has grown from 32 to 37 members during the past year. This is the highest membership level achieved during the six-year history of the club.

The Campbell County Lions Club meets at 6 p.m. on the second and fourth Mondays at the LaFollette Presbyterian Church. For more information, contact club president Mike McDonough at 423-562-8017. 

Thank you, Campbell County residents, for supporting your community Lions Club. Our motto: We Serve.

Mike McDonough

President, Campbell County Lions Club
