Lions mark anniversary

The Sandy Lions Club celebrated its fifth anniversary with its members and their families Nov. 25 at the Oral Hull Foundation. Lions clubs in Welches, King City, Gresham and Portland sent representatives.

The principal speaker was Sonja Palley, a past Lions Club International director, who spoke about activities of the Lions Club locally, districtwide, statewide, nationally and worldwide.

“The dinner was very delicious,” said Sandy Lions Club Secretary John Taylor. “The Oral Hull chef and staff did an outstanding job.”

Taylor said the Sandy Lions Club looks forward to a new year filled with activities including collecting used eyeglasses, hearing aids and cell phones, performing vision and hearing screenings at local schools, handing out American flags to first-grade students, participating in local events such as the Compassion Sandy Clinic, Sandy Mountain Festival and Oktoberfest, and holding its annual benefit golf tournament the first Saturday in August.
