The Lions Club of Gold Canyon awarded a Melvin Jones Fellowship, its highest honor, on Lion Carol Grunewald. Since Carol joined the club in 2009 she has served in multiple positions and on several committees. She has been the vision screening coordinator for several years, working with schools and families to screen students, and follow up for exams and glasses for those who demonstrate need.

 

‚ÄčThe Luau was a sell-out!  ...and a great deal of fun for all!  Thanks to all who attended and supported our fundraiser!!!

 

The Lions Club of Gold Canyon is having another great year, and we thank you for your continued support! 

The year began with Gold Canyon Lions working with other area Lions to vision screen almost 1,000 school children in our vicinity.  Our Annual White Cane Days fund-raiser was held in mid-November and again in February.  There was a most successful Pancake Breakfast fund-raiser in mid-December.  Our Lions participated in the Footprints Matter / Natural Restorations desert clean-up in January.  Our Lions with the other volunteers removed over 36,000 pounds of trash from Tonto National Forest and Arizona State Trust Land! 

We all had a great time at a special event at Flaire! Fashion and Fun in Gold Canyon.  Gold Canyon Lions also provided vision screenings during the Project Connect in Apache Junction in mid-February.  The club's first ever Luau was held in March. 

The Lions Club of Gold Canyon distributes 100% of fund-raising proceeds to the food bank, Project Help, The Community Allaiance Against Family Abuse, The Boys and Girls Club of the East Valley, Leader Dogs for the Blind, Diabetes Research, and America's VET Dogs.  Besides support for local and international relief through Lions International, we provided scholarships for deserving Apache Junction High School seniors and support to the Arizona Sight and Hearing Foundation, as well as Camp Tatiyee, a camp for special needs children and young adults.
