Centennial Coin Update
On Sunday, April 30, 2017 the Athens Lions Club held a very successful senior dinner and hearing screening. This was the 28th year that the Loins have honored the seniors of the Athens School District with a free dinner. The Lions also held a free hearing screening to anyone 10 years old and older. This year 126 meals were served. The meal consisted of ham, turkey, mashed potatoes, dressing, gravy, green beans, deserts and drinks. The hearing bus, courtesy of the Lions of Illinois Foundation, screened 24 people. Eight of those tested were referred to the doctors for further testing. The Lions to very happy to provide both events for their community. The Lions wish to thank the City of Athens for the use of the hall.
The Athens Lions Club collection day for Toys for Angels was held on Saturday, December 3. It was perfect weather for the day. The Lions collected over $2700 and a pick up load of toys in the 4 hour time. Because of the generosity of the Athens Community, 113 children, ages birth to 12, will be able to have toys for Christmas. Thank you all for your donations and kindness.
