Fairfax Lions each year raise funds by operating a food booth at the Fairfax City Fall Festival.  It is a great opportunityto have fun, interface with our comminity, and raise funds that go directly to our service programs. We are a non-profit, all volunteer organization; ALL PROCEEDS go to charity.  We thank the Fairfax community for suporting us, and enabling our mission of service to those in need.  THANK YOU!

Speaker: Child Abuse

Posted on October 8, 2015Leave a comment

Our dinner meeting guest speaker on October 6 was Ms. Kay Corbett.  Kay is the author of “Calla Lilies: A True Story of Four Sisters and Their Struggle to Survive Abuse, Addiction, and Poverty in America.”  We learned about life-long struggles of young people who suffer abuse, as told from Kay’s perspective as step-mother of 4 abused girls, and the insensitivity of our justice system to such problems.  Of note: Fairfax County has set aside funding as a test to help treat victims of abuse who are now incarcerated; Kay considers this a big step forward.
