Letter: Sugar Grove Lions Club seeks new members

By on January 10, 2013

“You can’t get very far until you start doing something for someone else.” That’s what Melvin Jones said 100 years ago, and it still applies today. Melvin Jones founded Lions Clubs in 1917. He was an insurance executive who decided to give back to the community that helped him become successful.

It’s about going home after a fundraiser with that warm feeling, knowing you made a positive difference in peoples’ lives. You’ll realize as you get older how important it is to help those in need … but why wait until you get older? You can start right now by joining the Sugar Grove Lions Club. We’re going to meet at the end of January, and you are invited if you are 18 or older. Stay tuned for the date, time and location of the meeting.
