Cherokee County will have many visitors next week. People will be coming from many parts of Alabama — as well as from other states — to attend the 2017 District 34-A Lions Clubs convention. International Director Bruce Beck and his wife and fellow Lion Erin will be venturing from Palisades, Minnesota.
Local Lions members know that Cherokee Countians will extend a warm welcome to all of the visitors encountered at various sites in the Land of Cherokee. Lions members will be showing off special sites March 10-11.
A reception will be held at the secret atop the mountain at Sand Rock. A breakfast will be held at the Museum. A business meeting and luncheon will be held at the Chamber of Commerce meeting room. Excursions to Cherokee Rock Village, Cornwall Furnace Veterans Memorial Park, Little River Falls and Canyon, Canyon Center, Orbix Hot Glass will be available. If weather permits, a flight over the canyon will be a treat for the winner of a drawing from names of people who have donated to Alabama Lions Sight projects. A dinner at the Judge’s House (Lindsey House) — complete with a giant birthday cake — will help the convention attendees celebrate Lions Clubs International’s 100th anniversary!
