The Muleshoe Lions Club

Over one million Lions are serving the world one community at a time. Our local Muleshoe Lions Club rolled up their sleeves and took action and had a rip-roaring year in 2018. We leaped into the year by celebrating with Watson Junior High student, America Pontoja. She had won our local Lions Club International Peace Poster Contest last November and had advanced to the district level. America won 1st place after competing with over 300 contestants! In March and April, we were preparing for our annual Roseday. The profits from our sale go to help children in the area with eyeglasses and to sponsor kids with disabilities to go to Texas Lions Camp.
