Lions Club fruit arrives Friday / December 09, 2009
The South Boston Lions Club citrus fruit will be ready for pick up Friday and Saturday, Dec. 11 and 12 beginning at 8:30 a.m. until dusk at the rear of the South Boston Venture Center Building on Seymour Drive. All those who have ordered fruit, please pick up your fruit as early in the day as possible. There will be Lions on hand to load your fruit for you.

The South Boston Lions Club wishes to express our appreciation to each individual, business and others who have purchased fruit this year in support of our number one fundraising project. Special appreciation is expressed to Dollar General for trucking services, Lewis Johnston and Willard Greer for the use of the warehouse, Lafell Elliott for the use of equipment, and the Gazette Virginian, News & Record, radio station WHLF 95.3 and Comcast Cable TV for providing publicity. We also thank all of the individuals who are not Lions who sold fruit and assisted in so many essential ways to make this project a success. You have made this another successful year for the Lions fruit project which will provide funds to assist with the needs of those less fortunate in our community.

The South Boston Lions Club is a service organization that will celebrate 83 years of community service to Halifax county, our state and our nation on Jan. 17. Since 1925 when Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become "Knights for the Blind" the Lions have put their highest priority on sight. All profits from this fruit sale will be used to provide assistance to others in need.
