Palmer Lions Club Members Truly Serve
Palmer Lions Club serves in many capacities. Recently, we participated in Mat-Su Regional's Baby and Children's Fair where we screened around 30 people. We also just finished up helping to man the gate for the Palmer High School basketball games. We do this so the parents get to watch their children play, rather than man the tables.
On April 30th be sure to look for our yellow vests out by the Alaska State Fair's Purple Gate. We do our roadway cleanup along that stretch. Then a couple weeks after that we will be cleaning up the Lions Kiddy Park down the road from the Palmer Post Office.
Our Weekly Meetings
Our recent meetings have had speakers from Alaska Farmland Trust, the Anchorage Lions - BEEP Baseball team, SAFE Families for Children Mat-Su, Tundra Safety and Training. Our upcoming meetings will have speakers from HeartReach Center and Alaska State Chamber of Commerce's Business Week Program.
In the Past
We have had some extraordinary service opportunities. We served as security at the Mat-Su NFL Play 60 hosted by the Mat-Su Seahawker Booster Club, United Way of Mat-Su, and Community Sports Inc. At this event, the Superbowl Champion Seattle Seahawks came to join the Mat-Su kids in one day of active play.
Our Lions that volunteered got the opportunity to hangout with Heath Farwell and Mike Morgan as well as the Lombardi Trophy.
