Highland Lions to hold Candy Days

The Highland Lions Club will host their annual Candy Days Oct. 9 and 10. Lions members will be selling candy at various locations in town.

Last year, Candy Day funds helped the Highland Lions provide financial support of more than $6,000 to 25 hearing or visually impaired persons through free or discounted tests, glasses or hearing aids.

The club also sponsored four children with hearing loss to attend Camp Lions, a week-long camp near Benton, Ill., for the hearing and visually impaired. The Highland club also provides ice cream sodas for all campers.

Donations can also be made toward the Candy Day event. Make checks payable to the Highland Lions Club or Lions of Illinois Illinois Foundation and mail them to: Highland Lions Club, P.O. Box 182, Highland, IL 62249.
