ANGOLA - The Evans Township Lions Club, Inc., will host the 59th annual Children's Halloween Costume Parade on Oct. 27. Step-off time is 2 p.m. from the Angola Village Fire Hall at 41 Commercial St. The parade down North Main Street and through the village takes about 20 minutes. Returning to the fire hall, the costumed marchers are presented with "treats" provided by local businesses and the Evans Lions Club. Local children, with their parents' help, are encouraged to prepare their costumes for this parade, and also for the local "trick or treat" activities associated with the celebration of Halloween.
The next Lions Club community activity will be the annual White Cane Day held on Election Day, Nov. 6. Lions Clubs' primary service is to assist the blind and the visually impaired. The white cane with red tip is an internationally recognized symbol for a visually impaired person. This fund raising activity is town-wide on Election Day. This year's Evans Township Lions Club President, Lion Jim Dawson, reminds everyone that every cent collected from the public by Lions Clubs must be spent to help the public. There can be no "administrative costs" deducted from these funds.
Look for Lions Club members, wearing their familiar gold-colored vests or blue and gold hats, at the parade, Fright Night at Highland Fire Hall, on Election Day, and even at Christmas in the Village activities.
