Farmers Market Lions booth

In an effort to establish a greater visible presence in our local community, Brookings-Harbor Lions Club set-up a booth at the Saturday Farmers Market August 28th.  Manned by Lion Club President Gary Baxter, Lion Secretary Marianne Baxter and Lion Pamela Thorsch. 

The goodwill created that day delighted market goers and doors opened to new friends.  That day, our members collected 20 pairs of used eyeglasses for our Lions vision recycle program. Also our unsold baked goods went to benefit the homeless served at St. Timothy’s Church.

All and all, it was a good day, and our “paw-print” set the stage to increase awareness of how Lion Clubs empower communities.  Thank you to the community for your donations and continued support!
