LIONS DONATE DOLLARS
November 10, 2016
Where there is a need, there is a Lion,” exclaimed Lions Club District Governor Larry Masters who arrived in Cedar Key with Lions District Secretary Sue Masters, Second Vice-District Governor Bobby Wright, and Lion Blanch Day on Tuesday, November 8, 2016.
Masters and his fellow Lions certainly saw the need: the Cedar Key Library after the damage done by Hurricane Hermine.
And, as the Lions motto says, “We serve,” serve they did. Ten thousand dollars was awarded to the Friends of the Library in Cedar Ley for the restoration and rejuvenation of the Children’s Section of the Cedar Key library. The check was graciously and enthusiastically received by Friends of the Library Sue Wooley with applause from the twenty attendees before the Library.
After the brief ceremony, the four Lions boarded a George Oakley-donated golf cart with Cedar Key City Commissioner Sue Colson for a one-hour tour of the island community. After the tour, the foursome attended a Lions Club meeting, planned to eat Cedar Key’s best seafood, and spent the night at the Island Hotel.
