Getting ready for the Lions District 31-I fall convention
Reminding all Lions that the District 31-I’s fall convention will be at Camp Dogwood Nov. 3-5. Don’t forget to bring auction items for Saturday morning and crafts, gifts, and Lions-themed items for the boutique. All proceeds go to Brighter Visions. From Friday fun night with the band “Caution! Blind Driver” to Sunday morning’s “Rise to Hunger” project to prepare 10,000 meals, there will be lots of activities for Lions and guests. Come for the day or stay in one of the hotel style dorm rooms. Nearby Mooresville provides many opportunities for touring, dining and shopping as well.
Lions now have Camp Dogwood raffle tickets for sale at $10 each. Proceeds are used for the maintenance of the camp which provides a retreat for the blind and visually impaired in NC. The winner will be drawn June 15, and will get to choose a new vehicle from Vestal Buick-GMC, either an Encore, Verano, Terain or Canyon.
