From Beth Perry, member Creston Lions Club
We are all looking forward to spring! Many of our activities will include spring house cleaning. If you find used eyeglasses or hearing aids Creston Lions Club members want to remind you that they can be donated to a good cause. These items are refurbished and provided to deserving persons. Collection boxes are located at the restored depot memorial room, Creston Walmart Supercenter, Southern Prairie YMCA, Creston Farm and Home, Rectory Re-Run, United Methodist Church and Christian Church Disciples of Christ. The items can also be donated at the annual Lions Club Spud Supper to be held Thursday, Feb. 27, 4 to 7 p.m. at the United Methodist Church. Over 250 pair of glasses were donated in Creston in 2013.
A focus of Lions International is Diabetes awareness. Creston Lions encourage the community to take advantage of the February wellness screenings available at Greater Regional Medical Center 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday this month. One of the tests includes a glucose test. No appointment is needed but a 12-hour fast is required before checking in at the GRMC main entrance registration desk. No appointment is necessary. You choose the screenings you want. No insurance will be filed. Payment is due at the time of service. Hurry — February won’t last much longer.
Creston Lions Club members appreciate the support from the community.
