The Stafford County Lions hosted a booth at the Stafford County Fair to raise money to support their sight, hearing and diabetes programs and to provide awareness to the community about the history and mission of the Lions. The club also sponsored a second booth at the fair for their Leo clubs from Colonial Forge High School and Stafford Middle School to promote sight and hearing impaired awareness.
To help fund their missions, club members held a bake sale with homemade items and a raffle with prizes donated by the Weis markets in Stafford County and Carlos O’Kelly’s in the Aquia Town Center. The Silcox family of Falmouth won the first-place prize from Weis Markets, and Kim Grotenrach from North Stafford won the second-place prize from Carlos O’Kelly’s in the raffle. Stafford County Lions return 100 percent of the money raised from the public to the community through their missions.
The Stafford County Lions meet at Augustine Golf Club on the third Tuesday of each month except December and over the summer months. During the months that there is no official meeting, members continue their service work and fundraising.
