PERRY TOWNSHIP LIONS CLUB CELEBRATES 75 YEARS OF SERVICE
(PERRY TOWNSHIP, STARK COUNTY, OHIO) – Perry Township Lions Club will celebrate its 75th year anniversary on January 21st, 2020 at Pete’s Restaurant for an evening of fellowship and celebration.
Since the club’s chartering in 1945, its members have worked on a variety of projects in the local community, such as providing eye exams and glasses for those in need, support diabetes research and pilot dogs. Proceeds from past fundraising events have gone to Salvation Army, school supplies and Angel Tree. The club is currently organizing a Pancake Breakfast and Spaghetti Dinner to raise funds for community needs.
According to Bill Keltner, Secretary for the club and Zone 9 Chairperson, “I have been a Lion for 27 years and I am proud of what our small club has been able to accomplish. I enjoy the fellowship at our meetings and the dedication our members have to provide help for those in need.”
The Perry Township Lions Club has 10 members and meets on First and Third Tuesday of the month (except in December) at 6 PM at New Life Methodist Church, 1023 Whipple Ave NW Canton, OH 44708. Lions clubs are a group of men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfill those needs.
