The Victor Lions Pride Newsletter

For the past 78 years, the Victor Lions Club has always been known as a steady Community Support Organization with a strong core of locals dedicated to the motto of “We Serve”.
Whether it is a Fundraising activity, or a Community Service Project, you can always count on the Lions to be in the middle of something beneficial, and this past Saturday was no different.  
On a very cold and rainy morning, the Victor Lions continued their 15 year tradition of making the Gateway to the Fingerlakes, Route 332,  a good first impression for both travelers and commuters.  Walking 5 miles in ankle high wet grass, 10 Lions accumulated 15 large plastic bags containing everything from cans to fast food wrappers, baseball caps, and all the strange things that go bump in the night.
The next time these Lions will be together is at our next meeting at Cristy’s Cafe, 10 East Main, Victor.....on November 6th, at 6PM........Feel free to drop in, enjoy a fantastic meal, and hear what else we are up to.  For more details, email President Jeff Jarmusz at jarmj@frontiernetnet



Victor Lions Continue to Have Big Presence at Hang Around Victor Day

Whenever you see a Pride of Lions in the area, they are either providing a Community Service or doing some sort of Fundraising for someone’s benefit.  
Saturday, they were right in the middle of wonderful scents of Zweigle’s Sausage, Texas Red Hots, and Cheeseburgers at their concession stand just outside the Library at Mead Square.
Lion’s President, Jeff Jarmuz, reported that they served over 500 meals to those enjoying a cool fall afternoon taking in the sights at the 25th Annual Hang Around Victor Day.  
Another Lion’s booth located on Maple Avenue showcased what the Club has been doing since it began here in Victor back in 1945.  Lion Fred Grainy explained to visitors how locally, the Victor Lions Club preforms their Annual Early Childhood Vision Screening Program for 100’s of Victor Central Schools K and pre-k students.  Fred, who has headed this program since it’s inception said, “Our goal is to reach out to all preschoolers, emphasizing the importance of identifying potential vision problems early and referring those who need further care.”
Lion Joan Trost talked about the Seeing Eye Dog Training that the Lion’s have sponsored for well over 30 years, and Geordie Berndt explained how eyeglasses have been collected for over 40 years for the poor here in America, and also distributed around the world.
The Victor Lions Club has 23 members and is always looking for more who want to get involved with their community and make a difference.  If you would like “To Serve” and meet some pretty interesting folks..... call Fred at 924-5191......he will be glad to give you more details.
