calendar has diminished. We have provided information below thanking you

& Friends of Pleasant Grove Lions Club,
We as members of the Pleasant Grove Lions Club express our appreciation for
your support over the years, especially concerning our Community Birthday
Calendars. This project has been a major fund raiser for our club, enabling us
to offer scholarships to high school students.
Our club helps
with funding Hugh O’Brian Leadership Camps, and Boys State, Girls State
candidates. We have offered eye exams and eyeglasses to many in our area who

and to support the work of our Lions Club. We could not have done these things
without you, and we are very grateful for your loyalty.
could make the season of Thanksgiving your reason to help the Lions Club
accomplish our goals of serving others. Together, each of our small efforts can
bring great results.
We now would like to ask for a financial contribution from you. Perhaps an
annual contribution similar to your purchase of the calendar would work. However,
we would accept donations, in any amount, any time of the year. Would you
consider putting the Lions Club on your list of causes you want to support? If
you have questions please call (801) 913-2533.
