Lions Club hopes to feed 800 with spaghetti plates



Lions will also be conducting free eye and hearing screenings from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday during a health fair at Shiloh Baptist Church, located at 204 Harrisburg Road Club members will continue offering the free screenings from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday at Cafe Central, located at 500 Underwood Road.

“This past Tuesday, we did free eye screenings at the soup kitchen,” May said. “We checked 28 people, and over half of them needed glasses and one is really in need of surgery.”

Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization, with 1.35 million members in more than 46,000 clubs worldwide. The Milledgeville Lions Club was established in 1975 and has since continued to help hearing and sight-impaired individuals locally and statewide.

“We help the Salvation Army at Christmas, support the Shop with a Cop program and we’ve built wheelchair ramps,” May said. “We also clean up Highway 212 once a quarter, starting at the swimming pool and going up a mile. In the past we’ve also done a river cleanup before the Greenway was there.” 

The Lions convene the first and third Thursday of each month at Golden Corral restaurant for dinner at 6:30 p.m. followed by a meeting at 7 p.m.

For more information about the organization, to donate funds or purchase spaghetti dinner tickets, call May at 478-452-6929, or visit
