Annual tradition continues

Keeping with a yearly tradition, the Avalon Lions Club members spent Saturday, May 21, 2022, making the Haypress Area beautiful and safe for summer fun.

The playground equipment was washed, the ground cover under the equipment was raked soft and the weeds were removed from the border area.

The new trees, planted, after the fire swept through, were all watered and cared for. Tables and the BBQ were cleaned and are now ready for summer visitors.

This is the time of the year that the Avalon Club funds scholarships for the graduates of Avalon High School.

Should anyone wish to donate to the new Tom Jordahl or Pete Edwards Vocational Scholarships or the annual salutatorian scholarship the checks should be made out to Avalon Lions Club, and mailed to PO BOX 305, Avalon, CA 90704, before June 1, 2022.

If anyone needs the Avalon Lions Club 501-C information, it will be provided to you.

The Avalon Lions Club is continuing to serve the Avalon Community with prescriptions, commuter books, food and medical equipment.
