Lions Support Little League

Posted on September 19, 2017Leave a comment

Last year, Fairfax Lions Club allocated roughly 47% of its charity budget to youth programs. The programs included: Braille books for children, support for Sprout therapeutic riding, art and music contests, rennovation of the VA Lions Youth Camp, and support to two Little League teams.  We have supported local little league teams for years.  Here is a 1961 Fairfax City team called the “Lions.”

Lions Call Bingo at Fairfax Nursing Center

Posted on September 10, 2017Leave a comment

Each month (usually on the 3rd Wednesday) the Fairfax Lions call bingo for residents of the Fairfax Nursing Center.  It is a relatively small effort involving a handful of Lions, but this Bingo night is something the residents look forward to and enjoy.  Winners (and we try to assure everyone wins) receive coupons they can exchange in the Center’s store; all participants receive a small gift from the Lions club.

33 Good Units! Successful Red Cross Blood Drive: Sep 5, 2017

Posted on August 24, 2017Leave a comment

The Fairfax Lions Club blood drive for the American Red Cross was a great success: 33 “good units” were donated. Since the Lions began these blood drives several years ago, 3297 units of blood have been donated!

This drive was timely, given Hurricane Harvey. Red Cross blood serves our community and world-wide needs, but the blood supply was disrupted severely by Hurricane Harvey. Not only did blood needs increase, but normal blood donation in the 4th largest city in the US simply stopped – as facilities and people were preoccupied. So this Lions blood drive was meaningful.  

Mark your calendars, the next Lions Blood Drive is scheduled for Tuesday May 1, 2018.; same location: Providence Presbyterian Church.

The Lions thank all donors (which included many Lions)!
