Please use these businesses and thank them for helping your Greater Pine Island Lions for another year.
We need members desperately in order to continue. Please attend one of our meetings. Lions are people just like you who want to help our community. We meet once a month, the fourth Monday of the month, October through March, at the Fisher of Men's Lutheran Church, 10360 Stringfellow Road, St. James City 33956. On Feb. 25 our Lion's District 35-1 District Governor will be presenting the program. Dinner will be served. Please call if you want to attend so we can plan for enough food, 281-9761.
