The Baldwinsville Lions Club recently completed its 11th annual raffle. The Lions really appreciate those who responded to its fundraising efforts. Many people are aided through community support.
The Baldwinsville Lions help youth in various ways: eye exams and eyeglasses are provided for the needy; an annual scholarship is given to a Baker High School student with a handicapping condition; through Project See, children are tested for amblyopia (lazy eye); and the Baldwinsville Lions support Lions Camp Hickory, a juvenile diabetes day camp.
The Lions also support Guding Eyes for the blind and a leader dog school. The Finger Lakes Region Hearing Foundation is also aided. Donations are made to the Christmas Bureau, Meals on Wheels and other causes as needs arise.
Three winners' names were drawn in the February raffle: first-prize winner Mark Caswell won $150 and a basket of legal beverages; second-prize winner K. John Scott won $50 and a surprise basket; and third-prize winner Daniel F. Miller Jr. won $25 and a surprise basket.
Congratulations to the winners and many thanks to all those who supported the Baldwinsville Lions Club.
