The West Greene Area Lions Club recently announces the winners of its 22nd annual golf tournament fundraiser: Alan Walker, Vernon Simpson, Bob Copeland and Jim McDougal.

The West Greene Area Lions Club was started 65 years ago and is dedicated to serving those in need.

According to Alberta Jones, club member, the club’s giving includes assistance to the blind and visually impaired, support of the backpack program for hungry children, sponsorship on peace and drug awareness poster contests, scholarships for local students and many other humanitarian needs.

“Our motto is ‘We Serve,’” Jones said. “Without the help of those in our surrounding communities this would not be possible.”

Lions Club International was started 101 years ago and is the largest humanitarian service club organization in the country, with 4 million members worldwide.
