The Friendsville Lions Club recently approved 2 new members for membership in the club. Membership in Lions Club is by invitation, and Lion Renee Larue was officially inducted into the club by First Vice District Governor Gerry Beachy at their regular club meeting. The club meets at the Jubilee Diner in Friendsville on the 2nd and 4th Thursday at 6:30 PM each month.

Lions Clubs perform service activities that include collecting food for local food pantries and volunteering to help blind persons. They also raise funds to help purchase eyeglasses for the needy and to help many other organizations including Lions Clubs International Foundation. That organization recently provided $100,000 in grants to hurricane impacted areas.
