Lions Club Closes out the year with fun!

Let's face it 2011 was a very difficult year for many in the Vermilion community. Vermilion Lions Club has worked very hard to help those families that have struggled this year. We are proud to have raised funds for our eye-care mission in helping children and adults with vision care.

We also have worked to contribute financially in helping other worthy organizations from Grace's kitchen, to the Vermilion Food Pantry, Operation Christmas Joy and also helping students with contributions to the Athletic and Band boosters, plus much, much more.

Of course we couldn't have done any of this without our great volunteers and the overwhelming generous support of contributors who help other by purchasing French Fries and Perch at our Wagon during festivals and football games.

Just this past week we raised $1600 from our annual Christmas Party Mystery Gift Auction. Not to mention our volunteers took up stations at Salvation Army Bell Kettles.

We thank you Vermilion and hope to help even more in the New Year! Have a great 2012!
