Oak Hill Lions Club hosts community Christmas party

On Dec. 18, the Oak Hill Lions Club hosted its 3rd annual Children’s Christmas party. Nearly 50 local children and their families were treated to a fun evening complete with dinner, dessert, winter clothing, a craft to take home, and gifts. Everyone in attendance had a great time including the club members.

The Lions always enjoy getting out and seeing people in the community since a lot of what they do is often “behind-the-scenes.” The Lions Club would not have been able to put such a great party together without the generous donations and support of the many people who helped out. Donations this year were given by: Action Printing, Curves of Oak Hill, Little Caesar’s, Mountain Vending, and Wal-Mart.

The Lions Club also helps provide vision care and eyeglasses to those in need, in addition to a variety of other community projects. Applications for that service can be picked up from New River Vision Care or Southern Eye Care Associates during business hours. The Lions Club strives to provide assistance to as many people as possible, but due to financial constraints not everyone that deserves and needs the assistance is able to receive it. To help raise the funds needed to provide these services, the Oak Hill Lions Club holds several fundraisers each year.

The club is also always looking for new members to join. If you are interested in joining the club, or would like to make a contribution to the club to help the Lions help others in the community, you may call 304-465-0269 for more information. The club meets most Thursdays at the Scout Cabin in the city park at 6 p.m. Anyone interested in joining the organization is invited to join them for a meeting.
