Saturday, July 29, the Ava/Douglas County Lions will be hosting the district Lions for a training seminar put on the Lions Club District. We are planning a cleanup day at the building on Aug. 26. We are working on putting together an 80th Anniversary event on Oct. 14 at the Lions Club Building. We will be looking for ancestors of the original charter members. We will be planning a date for the Lions Walk/Run for 2018 soon. We are trying to not interfere with other local events. Come join us on the first and third Monday of the month at Lions Club building and consider becoming a member.
