Mothers Day Crafty Kids with Special Guest May 7th


We are happy to announce that we will have Lifestyle Chiropractic at our Mother Day Crafty Kids event on May 7th.   The office will be providing free chair massages for mom while the kids make some special crafts for Mothers Day along side Macktown Lions Club members.

We will be at the Talcott Free Library from noon to 2:30pm and as always this event is Free but donations are welcomed.   Donations from the public allow us to keep this program free to all families who attend.  Thank you for your continued support!

Rockford Memorial Visit


We are so blessed to be able to visit the Rockford Memorial Pediatric Unit every couple of months.  Our goal is to bring some smiles to the patient and their families during this time and hopefully a little piece of home.  We provide snacks, this time we will be bringing hot chocolate and cookies.  Thank you to many donators we are also able to bring stuffed animals for each patient.

If you are looking a place to donate some of your time the Macktown Lions club has many areas like this that need some support.  We also are looking for financial donations to keep our programs free as we do not do fundraisers unless we have a specific need in mind.

We appreciate the communities ongoing support of our programs and causes, we thank you!



Who doesn’t like Ice Cream and Cookie Dough Craving Ice cream at that!  We will be at Culvers in Roscoe on Jan 17th from 5pm-8pm.  We will have a special guest with us again this year, Pickles the Clown!!! Pickles will be doing balloons and face painting for the kids and the adults.  Why not? The adults can have fun too!

A portion of sales during this time will be donated back to the Macktown Lions Club to support our Youth focused programs as well as Sight and Sound initiatives.



Happy New Years 2016
