Candy Day 2016 Saturday October 8th

We will be at Caseys General Store in Rockton this Saturday October 8th from 8am-8pm.  We have heard rumors of some members dressing up in silly outfits to have some fun, we would love to see you in your silly outfit.   Stop on by and say hi, make a small donation and receive a tasty treat!

We are collecting your change for a great cause, 60% of the donation is being used for programs within the State with our Lions of Illinois Foundation.  The Foundation does great work with those with Sight and hearing impairments as well as a lot of other initiatives.

Locally the remaining 40% will stay right here in our local communities for the same initiatives as well as many other needs.  Where there is a need there is a LION.

This year we have Tootsie pops as well as Lions mints as a thank you to your donation.
