Lions Club Monthly Meeting

At the lions club’s September monthly meeting, Mrs patty Lowe and her student, Ivy Corbett, spoke to the club for “education month” to update the club on the students’ progress in the art program using mosaics. Last year, the club donated funds to the art program so  Mrs. Lowe could purchase materials to begin doing mosaics with her students. A year later, many students have thrived with this project using mosaics. She also recently received additional funds from the Smith County Community Foundation to expand the program. she now has materials and tools available at both the high school and middle school. 

Ivy shared what her current projects are and explained the process of doing mosaics. She expressed how much she loves the art program and both she and Patty expressed their thanks to the lions for their support of art in the school.  

Other club business included a donation to the American Legion in memory of Roy Wangerin.  A donation was also given to the commercial club to help support their activities. 

Upcoming Lions events are the delivering of meals on Veterans Day, candy sales at the parade, and their annual pancake feed Sunday, November 10, starting at 6am.
