The Jekyll Island Lions Club raises money for a variety of charities. One of the big annual fundraising activities is selling Guggisberg Swiss Cheese Wheels and, new this year, Tennessee Moonshine Cakes. In years past, the cheese inventory would have been completely sold by now but the Club still has 60 2-pound wheels on hand. Therefore, the Club will be selling cheese and cakes at the Brunswick Lions Club BBQ Beach Bash on Saturday, 8 April, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. The BBQ Beach Bash will be held in Brunswick at Mary Ross Park.
In other activity this week, Ruthy Stephens, Community Engagement Coordinator, from the Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation addressed the Club during the dinner meeting on 4 April at McCormick’s Grill on Jekyll Island. She discussed the services offered by the Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation and the role that local clubs play. The Jekyll Island Lions Club gave her a $500 donation to support the organization.
Aside from providing donations, the Jekyll Island Lions Club supports the Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation through volunteers at the monthly eye clinic it hosts at the Coastal Medical Access Project (CMAP) and by collecting used eye glasses for recycling.
