Lions Club Project

The Locust and Stanfield areas are growing and each town has a lot of new community members that may not have heard about the West Stanly Lions Club Fly-A-Flag Program.

For $25 each year they will place a flag in your yard on 10 holidays. If you would like this service you can contact a West Stanly Lions Club member or call David Almond at 704-578-4736.

The proceeds from this program will benefit many activities of the West Stanly Lions Club and Lions Clubs International.

These projects help the blind and visually impaired, the deaf and hearing impaired, Camp Dogwood for the Blind and sponsorship of the mobile screening unit at our local schools.

4 Grillin Guys
