MILFORD - The Milford Lions Club is hosting “Rock After the Market,” a live music event, on the porch of the Columns Museum, Sunday, September 24.
The event is between 4 and 7 p.m. and includes a barbeque and libation included in the ticket price of $40. Proceeds will benefit the Milford Lions Club’s service projects.
The Milford Lions Club has been in operation since 1952. Since its inception, the club has worked to provide service to the community as well as support for both State and International Lions projects.
When individuals in the Milford area have experienced times of need, the Lions Club has quietly provided support. In most cases this aid is given with no desire for recognition of the source, but only as a manifestation of the dedication to the Lion's motto, "We Serve".
In addressing the 1925 Lions Convention, Helen Keller challenged the members of the organization "to become knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness." Thus began the associations commitment to providing funding and other help to do research into the prevention of blindness, as well as providing services for those who are blind. The Lions are responsible for the creation of the SightFirst Program which runs internationally today.
The Lions participate in service activities emphasizing diabetes awareness, education and research; youth, work with the physically and mentally impaired, environmental issues, community welfare, and international understanding.
In addition, the local chapter is responsible for the Holiday Lighting Project, which always included the familiar "star" and "cross" shining brightly over the borough of Milford.
Tickets are available by calling 570-296-8126 or 570-249-4267.
“Space is limited, so get your tickets today and support this most worthy cause,” said Lions Club officials.
The Columns Museum, at 608 Broad St., Milford, is host to the popular Farmer's Market each Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Lions Club event will follow, beginning at 4 p.m. on September 24.
