The Lions will be having a Christmas party at Bev's Supper club on Tuesday, Dec. 10, at which time one Lion will be honored with the Melvin Jones award. This is the highest award that is presented by a Lions Club. (Melvin Jones was the founder of the Lions clubs International back in 1917.)
Each member is asked to bring to the Christmas party a toy for a child valued at approximately $10. This is done annually and are given to the Department of Family Services to be presented to needy families with children.
Members are also to keep in mind that the Crystal Falls Lions Club will again be selling Christmas trees starting around the first week of December.
"They are beautiful trees, some grown by the Lions, and the price is only $20," said a spokesperson.
The trees are sold at The Ravens Nest and the Jubilee grocery store in Crystal Falls. No meetings will be held during the month of November.
Visitors and prospective new members are always welcome to our regular meetings, which are held on the first and third Tuesday of each month.
