Have You Made A New Year’s Resolution?

Posted on December 30, 2017Leave a comment

Happy 2018!

As we welcome the new year, many people consider making a resolution.  Resolutions are a tradition, common in the Western Hemisphere but also found in many countries around the globe, where a person resolves to change an undesired trait or behavior, to accomplish a personal goal, or otherwise improve their life.

The Fairfax Lions Club in its monthly newsletter suggests resolutions for consideration by all.  Here are a few from calendar year 2017:

  • I resolve to participate in at least one Lion’s service activity each month this year.
  • I resolve to promote the theory and practice of the principles of good government and good citizenship.
  • I resolve to take an active interest in the civic, social and moral welfare of the community.
  • I resolve to help unite Club members in the bonds of friendship, good fellowship, and mutual understanding.
  • I resolve to provide a forum for the full and free discussion of all matters of public interest–partisan politics and sectarian religion alone excepted.
  • I resolve to show my faith in the worthiness of my vocation by industrious application to the end that I may merit a reputation for quality of service.

Our January 2018 resolution“I resolve: when a doubt arises as to the right, or ethics, of my action towards another, to resolve such doubt against myself.”

Have you made a resolution for 2018?

All are welcome to visit the Fairfax Lions Club.  We meet the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays each month, 630-830pm, for dinner at the American Legion (upper level) on Oak Street in Fairfax City.  Please join us and learn more about serving your community.  For more information, email:  [email protected]

Holiday Food Baskets – Serving 25 Area Families In Need

Posted on December 22, 2017Leave a comment

On December 21, the Fairfax Lions Club delivered holiday food baskets to 25 area families in need of assistance.  We are very happy to perform this service, as our local area has an increasing number of families qualifying for food assistance.  In Fairfax County (which ranks 2nd nationally for highest median household income), 76,000 people (7.1% of all residents) are “food insecure.”  This includes 30,930 children (12% of all children under age 18).

The holiday baskets we delivered included a frozen turkey (11 – 14 lbs) and two full grocery bags with lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, and many sides…for a complete, healthy and festive meal with dessert.  We also provided preparation instructions for the frozen turkey.

The Fairfax Lions Club is very proud to have a new corporate sponsor which makes these holiday food baskets possible.  That sponsor is Wegley, Higginbotham & Associates, a local Fairfax City firm which offers many tax, accounting and consulting services.  Learn more about them at:      http://www.whacpa.com/home.html
