In January, Higgins Diggins Lions Club will celebrate their 40th year of serving the needs of the community. Since their charter in 1978, members have raised and donated more than $1 million to many worthy causes and charities. One of their major projects is the Higgins Lions Community Center located on the corner of Magnolia and East Hacienda roads in Southern Nevada County. The facility is available for public and private use for meetings, parties and gatherings for a nominal fee. For more information call 530-268-3782.
