Fall Tree Planting

Join us for the Fall Tree Planting on Thursday, October 25th, 2012 at 2:00 PM. 

We will be at Chloe Clark Elementary (1700 Palisade Blvd) with City Tree Board Members, Mayor Michael Grayum, Steilacoom Schools Superintendent Bill Fritz, and the Chloe Clark 3rd Grade Students to plant three trees as part of Arbor Day and Tree City USA programs.  

The DuPont Lions Club purchased the trees and are donating them to the project as part of our commitment to the community and the enviroment.

Sight and Hearing Testing

One of the biggest things the Lions clubs do is vision and hearing checks for children in school. These checks allow children who may be having vision or hearing problems get the proper care, so they can have a successful educational career. The DuPont Lions club in association with the Lakewood First Lions assist the nurses throughout the Clover Park and Steilacoom school districts. Here are three pictures from a recent vision and hearing check.
