    Midway Lions Club Texas Hold'em Midway Lions club members continue their efforts to help those less fortunate in the area by making contributions to local charities. This is only made possible by the community supporting our fund raisers. In the past fiscal year our club of 60 members has donated more than $18,000 to charity, which takes a lot of work for 60 people to raise. Some of the local charities supported by Midway Lions continue to see more calls for their services due to the poor economy. We hope to continue to support local Scout troops, Camp Sunnybrook, Meals on Wheels, the Consortium Schools and Gull House to name a few. More than $500 was used to fill food baskets, and with the added demand and the cost of food going higher, this amount will probably need to be doubled. So come out and enjoy yourself Aug. 8 at 7 p.m., at the Indian River Fire House, knowing full well that the money spent at our Texas Hold'em will be put to good use.
