S.C. Lions rally on State House steps

  • Saturday, March 29, 2014

During the month of March, Lions from all across South Carolina have walked the main streets of their respective cities, towns and communities as part of the second annual “South Carolina Lions Walk for Sight” to increase public awareness of Lions' humanitarian services in our state and around the world. Highlighting their motto, “We Serve,” Lions focused public attention on their roles as servants of the less fortunate throughout the world and providers of a better quality of life to many residents of the Palmetto State.

To celebrate the huge success of the statewide walk, S.C. Lions will hold a concluding rally on the steps and lawn of the South Carolina State House in Columbia on Saturday, March 29, at noon. Several hundred Lions and numerous state and local dignitaries are expected to gather, review and acclaim the services and achievements of Lions Clubs throughout South Carolina. Senator Thomas Alexander, District 1, Oconee and Pickens Counties, will be the keynote speaker for the closing ceremony.

According to Walk for Sight Chairperson, Lion Rick Pressly, “Our Lions thank everyone who already supports and contributes to S.C. Lions' important work, and we invite them to join us at the rally and to become members of their local Lions Club. Together, we can truly help make a difference in our communities. From 2012-2013, Lions across the state saved the health care system of South Carolina $1.4 Million in services delivered to our communities.”

Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.35 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
