Thanksgiving Dinners for 25 Families

Posted on November 27, 2019Comments are off

For decades Fairfax Lions have provided holiday food baskets to deserving families in our community. In recent years, Lions delivered holiday food baskets to local families selected by the Main Street Child Development Center. (Learn more about MSCDC at http://www.mainstreetcdc.org. )

On Tuesday, November 25, the Fairfax Lions met at the MSCDC facility and presented Thanksgiving food baskets to 25 local families. We are proud to serve people in our community!

We sold out of all citrus fruit at 1130 on Saturday, November 23rd. This was a very successful sale – we enjoyed decent weather most of the 3 days (Thursday-Saturday), we were thrilled to see SO MANY REPEAT CUSTOMERS, and the quality of the oranges and grapefruit was simply outstanding.

The proceeds from this sale will fund our charity programs for about 4 months! Look for our next sale, December 12-14 – we promise to order more Navel oranges and more Mandarins! Sign up now for email reminders, and the discount coupon, click on this link: Fruit Sale Notification

Lions Screen Vision of Pre-School Children

Posted on October 7, 2019Comments are off

The Fairfax Lions Club completed a vision screening event at the Main Street Child Development Center in Fairfax on Oct 7.  Fifty pre-school children age 3 to 5 were screened, and ten were referred for a complete eye exam.  One of the referrals could not be screened after four failed attempts because the boy’s pupils were too small.  A 20% referral rate is quite high for pre-school children.  It is a privilege to be able to help identify possible vision problems in young persons.

The Fairfax Lions thank the donors who took their time to give the gift of life-saving blood!

On Sep 23, 2019, the Red Cross collected 14 units of blood at the blood drive we sponsored; all should know, every donation makes a difference!

The demand for donated blood in our nation’s hospitals is consistently high – hospitals need about 40,000 donors every single day! YOU can make a life saving difference.
