Greenbrier Lions eat fish and say thanks

The Greenbrier Lions Club enjoyed their fish dinner fund raiser and silent auction last Saturday evening. They want to extend their "Thank You" to the citizens of Greenbrier for donating so many fun items for the silent auction. A donated "Arkansas" sign was a hit and prompted some special bidding along with other silent auction items like satchels and men’s tools. Hart’s Seafood served delicious fish and chicken meals complete with dessert and drinks to almost 100 guests. Students from the EAST program of Greenbrier High School helped serve.

The Greenbrier Lions are a small club and want to extend an invitation to anyone interested in community work to come to their next meeting October 14. They meet every second and fourth Monday each month at the Senior Citizen Center on Highway 65 next to Harps Food Store. Lions welcome men and women to membership, regardless of political or religious affiliation.

Greenbrier Lions International (LCI) focus on programs related to sight conservation and scholarships for worthy students in the local community. Anyone of any age is free to apply directly to the Lions for eye care.

Their next big project is the Greenbrier Annual Christmas Parade. Each year they help organize this huge event and provide a lively Santa for the enjoyment of everyone. Their annual chili cook-off on parade day is always a hit. They are going to need all the help they can get to continue this valuable contribution to our town. They exemplify the national motto, "We Serve". If you would like to help out this year and join the Greenbrier Lions Club, call Don McMillen, 501-679-1576.
