New Lions Club coming to Opp?

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, March 9, 2016

After several years of not having a Lions Club in Opp, locals are attempting to start a new club.

Frank Moore of the Daleville Lions Club and District 34C First Vice District Governor Daryl McDaniel were on hand Tuesday at the Opp Chamber of Commerce, holding an informational meeting and recruiting charter members.

The new club will be considered a Centennial Club and a minimum of 20 new members are needed to start the club.

Moore told the small group gathered that Lions Club International focuses on environmental, vision, youth and hunger projects.

He said that while the Lions Club is known internationally for its help with vision programs that it actually helps more with youth programs.

Moore told the group that the new club would need to conduct a needs assessment to see which goals were most important to the community.

Moore said the club is the largest service organization in the world.

Cost to join is $30 for the charter fee, which can be waived for veterans and students ages 18-30.

The cost for the club will be around $100 per year.
