THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL Lifestyle WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19, 1998 — 5 iommunity RELIGION NEWS Continued from Page 3 sel Parish Hall, 630 Maple St. in Fort Bragg. The dinner, a benefit for Habitat for Humanity of the Mendocino Coast, will feature a home made menu including Tamales (pork or chicken), Birria de Res, Enchiladas, Rice and Beans, Mexican Salad and Bunuelos for dessert. People will also have a chance to catch up on local Habitat for Humanity projects and enjoy the company of their neighbors. For more information and tickets, call Gloria at 964-9021. Free car wash On Saturday, March 21 the Evangelical Free Church youth group will be having a Free Car Wash in the old Kmart parking lot from 10 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Donations are welcome but not required. The goal is to wash at least 100 cars. Various sponsors have pledged a certain amount of money per car washed. There will also be a bake sale at the same location during the car wash. All proceeds go toward a trip to Mexico which will take place during spring break. There they will work on building a halfway house for children who have been living on the streets as well as a drug rehab center. Women Writers at Book Co. Mendocino Book Company will present readings from "Saltwater, Sweetwater: Women Write From California" and "At Our Core: Women Writing About Power" 5 to 7 p.m. Friday. Refreshments will be served. "Saltwater, Sweetwater" gathers 46 Mendocino and Sonoma County women writers together to celebrate where they live and where they are in their lives. It is a collection of short stories, poems and essays dedicated to environmentalist Judi Bari and writer Suzanne Lipsett, both of whom died of breast cancer. "At OUr Core," which includes the work of two locat women, articulates the awesome breadth and subtlety of what power means to women. Some of the local women will be reading from their work are Sunlight, Fionna Perkins, Linda Noel, Robin Rule and Barbara Boer. Also attending will be con- tributing artist Tamsen Donner. Mendocino Book Company is located at 102 S. School St., Ukiah. For more information, call 468-5940. t Doll's Birthday party Saturday A parting honoring a birthday for special dolls and teddy bears will take place 10:30 a.m. Saturday at the Ukiah and Willits libraries. The event is for children under 8. They are invited to bring their favorite doll or teddy bear. For more information, call the Waldorf School at 485-8719. Chatter Continued from Page 3 directed towards youth however, as in the Senior Center they do donate money and time to older generations. A few years back there was an elderly couple whose home and porch was in dire need of repair and one of the Lions Clubs rebuilt the porch, put on a new roof and performed rriany other improvements to make the home more livable and safe. "-The Lions Eye Program is very special and a very successful Lions program. This program will provide exams, frames and glasses for children to age 18 who need corrected vision and whose parents cannot afford to pay for it. The Eye Chairmen work closely with the school nurses who send the notices (that a thild did not pass a vision test) noj: only to the parent, but one to th$ Lions Club to see if the family can qualify for assistance. The families are contacted and an application is completed and voted on. Although the program is'primarily. focused on children, all age groups may apply. Every stage of this program is very confidential. The results are that since the mid 20s, hundreds, probably thousands of Ukiah Valley children and adults have received corrected vision and tens of thousands internationally. Pop Warner Football is a Lions favorite and much support is lent to this youth sport, including sponsorships in Little League and Soccer. Speech contests that offer scholarships are put on by the Lions to encourage youth to practice and perfect public speaking (a fearful prospect to most adults) in a competition form. These Student Speaker Contests for high school students earn scholarship money at each level of competition and a total of $18,000 could be won by a student. Other programs are the Cal- Neva Eye Foundation, Canine Companion which provides trained dogs for wheelchair bound or handicapped people, and the Lions Club Foundation which assists disaster victims, such as the Autumn Leaves fire, fAlfH and local flood victims. Each club has differences and different projects, but all Lion Clubs act as Robin Hoods of sorts, gathering monies from the more fortunate and giving it away to the less fortunate. Only Robin Hood just handed out the money; he didn't get in there and work too. I think this analogy of what Lions do (by Art Safford a long time Lion) is very appropriate except that Lions just quietly dp the work and take little glory, if any, for their good deeds. I know that I came away from this research with a lot of new information and a heck of a lot of gratitude for a club that has left its impact on our community for a long time. Lions are working members who enjoy the comradery, and appreciate the opportunity to change something bad or wrong into good or right. Their simple goal is to assist young people and their families and support their community. Many a time I have grumbled about paying for parking at the Fairgrounds, (a whopping 40 .percent of the Lions Club's fund raising income). When I discovered, through researching for this column, the great good and difference my parking money can make to children and youth, I will remain silent forever on the issue: So I encourage you to drive into the grounds (with a (Smile), pay your fee for a more •Convenient spot and know that you are helping youth and the less fortunate in your community. If you are interested in learning more about Lions or joining one of its clubs, contact the presidents mentioned in the beginr ning of this article. And if you know a Lion, shake their hand and let them know you appreciate their efforts. Remember, Out of the Mud Grows the Lotus.
