As a service to the community, the Carbondale Lions Club has been working on replacing the community bulletin board, which was located on private land east of the U.S. Post Office. The family of Robert Sherwood, who are the current landowners of the bulletin board location, have generously agreed to allow the placement of a community bulletin board structure on their property.

The Carbondale Lions have been assisted with much volunteer time by professional sign builder, Rick Altis. Lions Club members along with Albert Sherwood, Santa Fe Trail High School student, Logan Reed, and other community volunteers, set the bulletin board in place on Sunday, Sept. 30, 2018.

In recognition of the 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance by the Kansas Volunteer Commission, the Lions kept busy working to complete this service project in September, in time for the community’s annual fall festival. There are a few finishing touches needed before the bulletin board is ready for community use. The Lions will monitor postings and ask those wishing to post to only attach papers with a home or office-style stapler or with tape. For safety reasons, nails are not allowed.

Another Lion service project is fall festival that will take place at Carbondale City Park this Saturday, Oct. 6. The festival was postponed from last month due to rainy weather.

Activities will begin with the children’s parade at 3:30 p.m. There will be vendors, Lions funnel cakes, Carbondale Police Department and fire department displays, inflatable bouncy houses and slides for all ages, and the farmers market, all starting in the afternoon. The main parade begins at 6:15 p.m., with staging at 5:30 at the city swimming pool, followed by the talented band, Delta Haze.

Vendors and volunteers should contact Lion Mary Burgett at 785-836-7887 or [email protected]. The club invites interested persons to join Lions and follow the LCI motto “We Serve”. New members are always welcome.
