The Tapia family in Bartonville lost everything in a home fire last month. Within minutes of hearing about the blaze, members of the Greater FM 407 Lions Club began to respond. The same afternoon of the fire Ms. Sherry Price, treasurer of the newly formed club purchased clothing for the family’s eight year-old boy and four-year old girl. The next day, several Lions had personally donated clothing and/or made cash donations. Just two days after the fire, Lions Club Treasurer Joe Adair presented a $200 check to help to help the family with emergency needs. This is a great example of how Lions can serve the local community. When tragedy strikes the victims often need help immediately. Lions Clubs are well known for providing rapid relief for many types of disasters all over the world. While our club held its first meeting just a few months ago, we are already partnering with local community leaders toward helping our neighborhood to be an even better place to live and work. Serving Bartonville, Copper Canyon, Double Oak and Lantana the Greater FM 407 Lions Club meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesday at the Bartonville Town Hall.
