Giving Tuesday

Posted on November 25, 2017Leave a comment

This Nov 28th, join the movement and give – whether it’s some of your time, a donation, gift or the power of your voice in your local community.

Giving Tuesday is a simple idea. Whether you come together with your family, your community, your company, or a charitable organization…find a way to give back and then share your idea with others thru social media.

You can donate to the Fairfax Lions Club – an all volunteer service organization. 100% of all donations go to community service projects. Projects include delivering holiday dinners to needy familys; prchasing eyeglasses for persons who cannot afford them; and so much more.

Please consider making a donation of your time, your old car, or your money to the Lions.

And, the Fairfax Lions invite YOU to our dinner meeting on Tuesday Dec 5th to learn about our service. Come at 6:30 PM, American Legion Post 177, 3939 Oak Street, Fairfax, VA. It includes social time, buffet dinner, speaker, and club announcements.  Guests are cordially invited.

Our nation, of course, is not alone in our world where diabetes is an ever growing and significant problem.  Knowing more can help you manage diabetes – if you have it, or hopefully help to reduce the chance you will develop it.  It is a complicated topic, and there is no panacea.  But your food choices, portion sizes, and exercise program are all important factors.

The diabetes information “book mark”  we encourage you to look at:
