THE Micoud Lions Club will celebrate its 20th year anniversary tomorrow.
Several activities have been organized to mark this milestone. The celebration will commence with a church service from 10:00 a.m. at the Saint Ann’s Parish Church in Mon Repos.
Four food hampers will be distributed to the less fortunate in Micoud North and Micoud South, an environmental project (tree planting) as part of river bank stabilization will be undertaken during the month and the Billina Clifford Memorial Lecture and Fund will be launched during this month.
Billina Clifford served as President of the Micoud Lions Club, Zone Chair for Zone 3B and was a chartered member of the club.
Since the club’s chartering in 1995, its members have worked on a variety of projects in the local community, such as building of homes for the elderly, feeding the less fortunate, making school supply donations, workshops for the youth, and eye screening and testing of primary school children in the Micoud Community. The Club has as its signature fund raiser an annual Valentine’s dinner whose proceeds go towards community projects.
Said Elizabeth Norbert, President of the Club: “We are proud of our club’s 20 years of service to the community. The Lions Club members thank everyone who contributes to this important work. You are truly helping Lions make a difference in our community.”
The Micoud Lions Club comprises 19 members and meets on the first and third Tuesdays of every month from 7:00 p.m. at the Micoud Secondary School. Lions clubs are a group of men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfil those needs.
