"We follow a long legacy of service inspired by all the Lions who have given to Boynton and Catoosa for 60 years," Backwell said. "If you would like to make a difference, become part of the effort."
Vision is a primary focus of the organization, assisting area residents who need glasses and qualify for aid. The organization works on a statewide level with Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation, Georgia Lions Camp for the Blind and the Emory Child Care Center.
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.
Club meetings are held the second Tuesday each month at 6:30 p.m. at Boynton United Methodist Church fellowship hall. Dinner is catered by the Dinner Bell. Cost is $6.50. Membership dues are $21 per quarter.
