Page Four N/Warren Town and County News Thursday, August 8, 2019 Information and photos submitted Norwalk Lions Club: July Starts OffWith a Big Bang by Linda Echelmeyer and Linda Bussanmas Norwalk is certainly well known for its wonderful display of fireworks and drawing people into our community from all over central Iowa. F nding for the fireworks extravaganza comes from two sources: the City of Norwalk and the Norwalk Lions Club. This annual event is conducted by the Norwalk Lions Club at McAninch Sports Complex on July 4th through the generous support of the City of Norwalk, local businesses and individuals. It takes the efforts of the entire Lions Club members to make this event a success. John Dagenais and his crew of shooters are trained and skilled at creating a colorful show the night of July 4th. Other Lions Club committee members raise the funding to offset the cost of the fireworks, offer bingo after the parade, and return the next morning to clean up after the show. The Lions are dedicated to making our July 4th Celebration a memorable event. For more than 42 years, the Norwalk Lions Club has provided community services including providing eyeglasses for those in need, eye screening in the Norwalk area for children six months to five years old through University of Iowa KidSight program, supporting the Norwalk Food Pantry, generating four scholarships to Norwalk High School seniors, planting/ maintaining the flowerbeds at the Norwalk cemetery, and volunteering for various projects in the community. The Lions Club is the largest humanitarian organization in the world with 1.5 million volunteers. When it comes to challenges, our response wherever, whenever, and however around the world is simple: We Serve. Meetings, the second and fourth Wednesday of the month at the Norwalk Easter Library, are open to everyone to attend. New members are always welcomed to join this active community group.
