The Surface Creek Valley once again showed that it has a big heart for the needs of community, and a good eye for value at the same time.
On Nov. 3, the Surface Creek Valley Lions Club helping to conduct the annual end-of-season fruit sale at Fritchman's Orchards at Eckert reaped a bountiful harvest of almost $1,200 in sales that will go to the club's many worthy causes.
Support for the event was a lot greater than club members had hoped for, said club members Pat Means and Ray Hanson, while thanking the local community for helping with the club's projects.
Means noted that the Lions International organization was early on the scene of the devastation recently caused by Hurricane Sandy aiding victims with recovery needs.
The Lions Club is focused on the local community. But the International Organization has the reach to help others suffering from events that are "nightly news" on the major media, Means pointed out.blog comments powered by Disqus
