Akron Lions Continue The Tradition Of Giving To Others

Donations were given out to various community groups that do so much for the area. The support that the Akron Lions get during the Ephrata Fair by purchasing their fries or delicious toasted cheeseburgers, enable them to support their community as well as the International Lions programs to bring sight and disaster relief around the world. The Lions motto is “We Serve” and the Akron Lions want to pass that on to the organizations it contributes to. To be a Lion is a very rewarding experience knowing that you can make a difference in your community. To become a member, call 717-859-1814.
