Every other year, the Jekyll Island Lions Club produces a telephone directory for the island. It includes all the residents and businesses plus safety information such as hurricane evacuations and the like. The Lions Club raises money from this effort by offering for sale advertising space in the book to area businesses and organizations, and then selling the book itself to the residents. The Club is currently in the process of updating the residential listing and selling advertisements for the 2018-2019 directory. The goal is to have the book compiled and printed in time to sell it to the winter residents while they are still on the island.
In other activity, the Lions club is getting ready for the annual Independence Day parade on the 4th of July. The Lions will be busy getting the golf cart float ready the day before the event and then entering it in the parade. They also will be putting out American flags in the Historic District and Beach Village before the parade starts and then taking them back to the warehouse at day’s end.
