Lions Club con­tin­ues to col­lect glasses

Record Observer - - News - By DAN TABLER Con­tribut­ing Writer

CEN­TRE­VILLE — One of the more suc­cess­ful projects of the Cen­tre­ville Lions Club, and Lions In­ter­na­tional it­self, is the col­lect­ing of old, un­used eye­glasses in spe­cially marked boxed.

The glasses are col­lected monthly in Cen­tre­ville from four lo­ca­tions, with a fifth store just added. Your old glasses may now be dropped off at a spe­cially marked box in Ed­wards Phar­macy. The other lo­ca­tions that have been used for a num­ber of years at the Cen­tre­ville Na­tional Bank, now Shore United Bank, at the Queen­stown Bank’s Cen­tre­ville branch, Op­ti­cal Gal­le­ria and Ca­boo­dle Car­tridge of­fice.

The project is just one of sev­eral that oc­cupy mem­bers of the ser­vice club which is meet­ing twice a month; for din­ner on the last Tues­day, and a busi­ness ses­sion on the third Tues­day, both at Good Guys Restau­rant.

Brent Car­roll, pres­i­dent, said at the last meet­ing that the Lions Club is so­lic­it­ing ideas for com­mu­nity bet­ter­ment now.

He noted also that the club mem­bers will have farm-fresh tur­keys again for sale prior to Thanks­giv­ing. You may con­tact his of­fice at 410-758-2788.

Car­roll said dis­cus­sions have be­gun on the Lions’ an­nual Bay Music Fes­ti­val next June that has been a big suc­cess held at the Queen Anne’s County 4-H Park for over 30 years.

The Cen­tre­ville Lions Club was formed in April 1947, and will ob­serve its 70th year of ser­vice to the com­mu­nity next April. It was spon­sored by the Queen­stown Lions Club, the old­est Lions Club in the county. It was or­ga­nized in 1935.
