On February 1, 2020, members of the Middleburg Black Creek Lions conducted a White Cane Awareness Day at the Middleburg Winn Dixie on Blanding Blvd. We reminded shoppers that white canes signify sight impaired individuals and to exercise caution while driving near someone with a white cane. Through the generosity of the Winn Dixie shoppers, MBC Lions raised about $250, which will pay for eye exams and glasses for 5 needy people.
Thank you to the generosity of the people of Middleburg. On Saturday, February 1, 2020, we held our White Cane Day. We collected $245 to continue to support our vision programs for the needy.

A HUGE thank you, Fellow Lions, for your efforts in making yesterday a very successful Golf Tournament. I appreciate those of you on the Golf Committee for attending the many hours of meetings, soliciting Tournament Sponsors, Hole Sponsors, donations for the raffles, securing sites, menus, signage, awards. A special thanks for all who worked the event, especially those sitting on golf holes in the sun ensuring fair Hole in One Contests. I heard nothing put positive comments from the golfers and our hosts at Eagle Landing. Awesome job!
Great Golf Tournament yesterday. Congratulations to our winners:
