Now in its 60th year serving Catoosa County, the Boynton Lion's Club donated $400 to the Georgia Lighthouse Foundation White Cane Fundraiser.
The donation was made in memory of late Lion M.H. McCauley.
“This assists many Georgians needing eye surgeries each year to receive the help they need,” said President Richmond Blackwell. "We are honored through this donation to remember a family - the McCauleys, who played a big role in the history of our club."
Vision is a primary focus of the organization assisting area residents who need glasses and qualify for assistance.
The organization works on a statewide level with Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation, Georgia Lions Camp for the Blind and the Emory Child Care Center, he said.
Another major community project is the long-term care and maintenance of the Dailey Hill Cemetery. The group is now receiving donations from friends and relatives of those interred there to assist with the costs of mowing and upkeep. Donations may be sent to Boynton Lions Club 3179 Pine Grove Road, Ringgold, Ga. 30736.
The Boynton Lions Club has meetings the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. Dinner is catered by the Dinner Bell. Cost is $6.50. The meetings are held in the Boynton United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall. Membership dues are $21 per quarter.
