County’s 55+ Community Action Plan

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Fairfax Lions Club was pleased to have Ms Jacquie Woodruff present a summary of Fairfax County’s “55+ Community Action Plan” at our dinner meeting on October 21, 2014. The county is preparing for the “age wave” – the increasing portion of elderly in the county’s population. The action plan addresses various actions in the categories of services, safety and health, community engagement, transportation, and housing – to support that growing elderly population. For example, the county supports expanding Project Lifesaver – which offers technology and processes to assist those with Alzheimer’s, dementia, or other cognitive conditions in case they wander from their residence or caregiver.

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING our Lions Food Stand at the Fairfax Fall Festival

Posted on September 24, 2014Leave a comment

Fairfax Lions had a successful fund raiser food sale at the Fairfax Fall Festival, Saturday Oct 11.  ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE SALES GO DIRECTLY BACK INTO OUR COMMUNITY TO SUPPORT THOSE IN NEED.  We had a fun time, and enjoyed meeting our many customers.

We sold Beer, Wine, Soda, Brats, Dogs, Sauerkraut, Chips — all at good prices.  The weather was rainy all morning, but cleared in the afternoon.  We did not have the crowds we usually see on a bright sunny day – BUT WE APPRECIATE ALL THOSE WHO STOPPED BY AND MADE A PURCHASE.

A SPECIAL APPRECIATION: As the Fall Festival was closing down a man asked about Lions’ service projects. We mentioned the Fairfax Lions will buy 30 pairs of eyeglasses for the needy this year, at a cost of $50 each. That man reached into his pocket, gave us a $50 bill, and said, “Make that 31 pairs of eyeglasses.” That donation is in addition others our customers graciously contributed. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
