·1 min read

Eight service projects and six collections are planned for Afton-Bayport-Lakeland Lions Club’s first Service Day.

The event will be 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 20 at Afton-Lakeland Elementary School in Lakeland.

The service projects will benefit local and national agencies and nonprofit organizations, including the Minnesota Lions Vision Foundation, the Minnesota Lions Hearing Foundation, the Ronald McDonald House, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and Color a Smile.

“This free event is an opportunity for the community to be involved and make a difference in someone’s life”, said Cheryl Kelly, event organizer. “We hope to make it an annual event.”

In addition to the service projects, Lions Club members will be doing free vision screenings for children and collecting used eyeglasses and hearing aids for Lions Club International. They also will be collecting pop tabs, bottled water and juice boxes for the Ronald McDonald House; nonperishable food items for the Stillwater Valley Outreach food shelf and lead fishing tackle for the DNR’s “Get out of Lead” program.

Hot dogs will be provided to volunteers.
