How many clubs do you know that have been around 75 years?
The Grapevine Lions Club has, and the group will hostÂ its 75th anniversary celebration Nov. 7 this year at The Gaylord Texan. The group (www.grapevinetx.lionwap.org)Â was chartered Nov. 25, 1934–making it the oldest service organization in Grapevine.
The LionsÂ allowed Larre and me to speakÂ at their weekly meeting Thursday atÂ the Bessie Mitchell House in Grapevine…and treated us to a tasty Italian lunch, too. Thanks to my eye doc, Dr. Tom Chandler, for the invitation.
Maybe the Grapevine Lions have been around so long because they have a catchy song they sing with a roar at the end…or maybe it’s all the good works they do. It’s a long list ranging from sponsoring children with disabilities to go to camp, providing eye exams for school children, donating large-print books for the Grapevine library, contributing to several charities, promoting Grapevine through the local chamber and on and on.
The group meets at noon every Thursday at 411 Ball St.,Â at Heritage Park in theÂ Grapevine Botanic Gardens. ou might think aboutÂ checking it out…they even have a “tail twister.”
