To the editor:
On behalf of the Lehigh Acres Lioness Club and all of the Lions who also donated their time to participate in our annual White Cane Day fund-raiser, I would like to thank everyone who donated their money on Feb. 1 and 2 in front of our local food stores.
I am happy to announce that this year's donations exceeded last year's donations. This means that the children's eyeglass programs in Lehigh Acres' schools can continue, as well as the scholarship program.
As our district governor recently reminded us, we as Lions and Lionesses work in a different kind of charity. We are a service club. None of the money we collect is used for anything like salaries or telemarketing.
So thank you again for donating this money and please consider joining our great local service club.
