Members of the Graeagle Lions Club recently conducted a cleanup on Highway 89 in Clio, as part of the Caltrans Adopt-A-Highway Program. Club members report that this is one of their ongoing community service projects.
The Graeagle Lions Club is a part of Lions Club International, and its motto is “We serve.” Other community service activities have included participation in the creation and maintenance of the disc golf course along the river walk in Portola and similar support for the therapeutic riding program Horses Unlimited in Graeagle.
The Graeagle Lions Club conducts local fundraisers at events such as Gold Discovery Days at Plumas-Eureka State Park and the Fourth of July celebration in Graeagle. The money the club raises goes directly back to the community, members report. For example, the club has assisted people with vision care needs, donated to local food bank Eastern Plumas Community Assistance Network and the Angel Tree Program, and granted scholarships to Portola Junior-Senior High School graduates for their further education.
The Graeagle Lions Club meets officially once per month between March through October at the Calpine Elks Lodge in Portola and socially at a variety of local restaurants or parks. Interested folks can contact Sandy Simmons at (530) 832-9818 to learn more.
