Please note that Feb. 19 will be a make-up day for the county schools.

Davis-Townsend Elementary is getting ready to launch a family reading project mid-February and will likely need some volunteer support. Copies of "Charlotte's Web" have been purchased for all students, staff etc. From Wednesday to March 23 the students will read the chapters at home with a family member. In the event that some students do not have someone who will read to them, the school is seeking volunteers. If you are available to come in two times a week to sit down and read with small groups of students (up to four) who do not have someone reading to them at home and who are not old enough to read the book themselves, please contact the school at (336) 249-9880.

Davis-Townsend Lions Club will be serving all you can eat pancakes from 7 to 11 p.m. March 3.

Lions, don’t miss the District 31-I cabinet meeting Sunday at 3 p.m. at George Pappas Victory Lanes in Mooresville. Stay after the meeting and enjoy a couple hours of bowling. Cost will be $6 per person (including children), and covers bowling and shoe rental.

Davidson County Lions Council will sponsor a visit from the Mobile Screening Unit at Davidson County Community College from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 17. Note that this date has changed from the one published last time. Tentative plan is for the unit to be set up near the Gee Building, but just look for signs to lead you to it. This opportunity for a free vision and hearing screening is open to anyone.

It’s never too late to get your Camp Dogwood raffle tickets from any Lion for the amazing low price of $10 each. The winner will be drawn June 15, and will get to choose a new vehicle from Vestal Buick-GMC. Proceeds are used for the maintenance of the camp which provides a retreat for the blind and visually impaired in NC. Ask any Lion, and get your tickets now.
