Oct. 22, 2011 - Girl & Boy State Scholarship winners

At our dinner tonight catered by Costa Vida we heard reports from our Girl and Boy State scholarship winners and our American Legion guests.  The Lions Club supports leadership programs that youth can participate in and develop in to our future leaders.  We are glad to support leadership programs as we can because we see the difference it makes in the participant's lives.  All scholarships came from Pleasant Grove High School.

Sept. 10, 2011 - Pleasant Grove Heritage Days

Every September the Pleasant Grove Lions Club provides breakfast at the Pleasant Grove Heritage Days festival.  This is an opportunity to let the community know who we are and to raise funds for the sight preservation and scholarship programs that we participate in.  This is a fun time for all and plenty of good food to eat.  Scones are an added plus.
