The regularly scheduled meeting of the Mansfield Lions Club on 08/23/22 was at the Clista A. Calhoun Center for lunch. The speaker was Robert Powell current Lion Past President and son of long time Lion Raymond Powell who has been District Governor.
Robert told the Club about the Louisiana Lions Camp a few miles north of Leesville, La. off of Hwy. 171. This camp was founded in 1957 for children with disabilities and is owned and fully funded by the Lions Clubs of Louisiana.
Each club donates to the camp mainly from fundraisers like the Jambalaya Meal that the Mansfield Club will sell tickets for in September. Robert askes everyone to help support our Lions Camp by donating $10.00 for a ticket that will also get you a great lunch!
The Lions meet every 2nd and 4th Tuesday for a catered lunch at the Clista A. Calhoun Center. Our next meeting is scheduled for September 13th so stop by for a catered lunch.
