Lions Club holds first meeting
Organization increases visibility, welcomes new members
PETERSBURG — The Petersburg Lions Club opened the 2017-2018 Club year with their first meeting on Sept. 7. Serving as Lion president this year will be Lion Steve Cates; he has set out to increase the public’s awareness of what the Petersburg Lions club does, increase visibility within the city and to grow membership in the club.
The Lions’ upcoming club activities include a visit with the Lions Club District Governor in October, sending members to the state level conference, and coming in late November, their annual Christmas tree lot to raise money for sight and hearing projects and charities.
The club meets the first and third Thursday of the month at Roma’s Italian Restaurant, 2447 County Drive. The Petersburg Lions Club invites current Lions looking for a club to visit them, and membership requests can be made by contacting Lion Steve Cates, 804-863-4242 or Lion Robert McClelland, 804-478-4234.
