Club news: Penn Valley Hi-Grader Lions Club

Lions Mike Nau and J.R. Cardona presented the “Flag Day Program” to four local schools. Three-hundred-and-fifty future leaders head the story of our flag, it’s history and the reason why it should be respected and how it should be treated.

This program is presented by all Lions Clubs and is very near and dear to all our hearts. Anybody wanting to participate next year, should contact their local club. The Hi-Graders were able to give financial support to quite a few of our local organizations last month. The Gold Country Community Center was presented with a check for $3,400 at their February board meeting. This was money raised form our January raffle during the crab feed. We were also able to spend $1,000 to support Sierra Services for the Blind, support the Pal Program, the upcoming Kids’ Fun Run and sponsor two Bear River High School students that applied for the Lions Youth Exchange Program.

We are now getting ready for the third annual Walt Becker Memorial Trap Shoot. The previous shoots supported two scholarships each for $2,000. The event will be April 2, at the Nevada County Sportsmen Club. For more information, call Barbara Martinez at 432-1126.
