SunBird Lions Club welcomed three new members on March 21. Our new members are Lion Verne Green and Lion Ronald and Lion Colleen Norgard. Their sponsor is Lion Gordon Olson. Thank you for joining and helping our community and the many fundraisers that help those in need throughout the world.

Please contact Membership Chairpersons Gordon Olson at 612-803-5215 or Irene Zeppelin at 651-206-8932, or ask any SunBird Lion if you would like information or have questions about becoming a SunBird Lion. The feeling of giving back and doing for those in need is something we all love.

Collection of Eyeglasses, Cell Phones, and Hearing Aids

Arlene Block

The SunBird Lions collect eyeglasses, hearing aids, and cell phones that are gently used to help those in need around the world who would otherwise not have any. You can call any of our Lions: Marilyn Hespel at 480-220-0956, Ellyn Davis at 520-589-0702, Paula Warhoover at 618-806-2464, or Renee Siuda at 48-622-2928 for pick-up of any of the items, or you may leave them at the SunBird clubhouse.

Lion Ray Clark delivered 3,300 pairs of glasses that SunBird Lions Club collected. Without your help, this would not be possible.

Thank you for making a difference.
