Lions Charter New Club at NACC
A new Lions Club is coming to the DeKalb
and Jackson County area on April 4 at 6:30 pm at the DeKalb
County Schools Coliseum when 41 men and women celebrate the
formation of the Northeast Alabama Community College Lions Club.
During the ceremony, Lions Club District Governor Fred Rogers
will present the members of the new club with their official
charter. Members of the Fort Payne Lions Club, who sponsored the
formation of the NACC Lions Club, will also be on hand to
congratulate the new Lions.
“I am extremely proud and honored to welcome all these fine men
and women as fellow lions,” said Billy Lewis, President of the
NACC Lions Club.
Locally, Lions Club activities include the pancake breakfast and
barbeque chicken plates, donations from which go toward
assisting the blind and visually impaired. “The NACC Lions Club
will be assisting with these projects and will be having some
projects of our own to be announced soon,” said April Wooten,
3rd Vice President/Public Relations.
Internationally, the Lions’ primary activity is assistance to
the blind and visually impaired. They are also very involved
with many youth activities. Lions Club International is the
world’s largest service club organization with more than 1.4
million members in more than 188 countries.
