Message from Lions Club

The Paonia Lions Club is part of an international service organization. The local members include a school teacher, another school district employee, and spouses of retired teachers and school district employees. Past members have included both a principal and a retired principal. Needless to say, in addition to being community focused, that focus includes supporting the community schools.
