Wilmington Island Lions Respond to Gov Perdue's Proclamation

#1 Jan 9, 2007
Today, January 9, 2007 the Georgia General Assembly passed a resolution naming Saturday, January 13th as Lions of Georgia Day. Governor Sonny Perdue signed the proclamation at 10:00 AM in the Rotunda next to Governor Perdue's office.
Savannah and Wilmington Island Lions Clubs will join other Lions Clubs all across the state to conduct special projects on January 13th to benefit the citizens of Georgia. Wilmington Island Lions will visit the residents of Oceanside Nursing and Retirement Center at 10:30 AM to deliver lap blankets, booties, gloves and refreshments.
The proclamation commends the hard work and dedication to humanitarian support of the communities of Georgia by the thousands of individual Lions, Lioness, and Leo Club members who make up over 300 clubs in the state. Lionism first began in Georgia with the formation of the Atlanta Lions Club in 1920. Now in the 86th year, the Lions continue to provide sight and hearing conservation services to those in need. Also, the Lions are among the first to arrive with aid for those who suffer natural disaster such as hurricanes or tornadoes.
Individual clubs help provide the public with eye exams and glasses. They provide a ray of hope where there was not one before. The Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation provides assistance for those who need major sight saving surgeries, hearing aids for those in need, and direction to find those services that can and do make a difference in countless Georgia lives. Since 1976, the Georgia Lions Camp for the Blind has brightened the lives of our visually impaired youth with the joy of freedom by experiencing camp life.
