GRAVETTE — Mem­bers of the Gravette Lions Club will hold a bean sup­per fundraiser from 5 to 8 p.m. this Satur­day, Sept. 30. The all-you-can-eat meal will be served at the Gravette Civic Cen­ter, lo­cated at 401 Char­lotte Street S.E. Club rep­re­sen­ta­tives re­mind area res­i­dents that Satur­day is the last day of the an­nual Pickin’ Time on ‘59 event and ask, “What bet­ter way to end a week­end of Pickin’ Time shop­ping?”

The menu will in­clude pinto beans and corn­bread, dessert and choice of drink for $5 a per­son. Meals may be eaten on lo­ca­tion or or­dered for take­out. Ad­vance or­ders may be made by call­ing club pres­i­dent Bill Mat­tler, 479-640-1199. All pro­ceeds will be used for Gravette Lions Club projects.

Di­a­betes aware­ness is a new fo­cus for Lions Club ser­vice ac­tiv­i­ties this year. Di­a­betes con­trib­utes to more than five mil­lion deaths a year, mak­ing it the eighth lead­ing cause of death in the world. In an ef­fort to help pre­vent and con­trol the in­ci­dence of this dis­ease, free di­a­betes screen­ings will be pro­vided at the bean sup­per by lo­cal nurses Sue Rice and Snooky Gar­rett.
