Lions Club continues to collect glasses
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.
