Karaoke fun night

at E.S. center

A karaoke fun night with disc jockey Chelsea Matta will be held from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday at the East Springfield Community Center, which is located on county Road 39 next to the East Springfield Volunteer Fire Department.

Admission is $3 with $1 going into the singer's reward jar. Matta will give each singer a ticket, and a drawing will determine which singer gets the winnings.

There is no admission charged for those under age 10.

The karaoke singing is open to all ages.

Refreshments will be available for sale.

"Come on out for a great night of fun and sing your favorite songs," an event promoter said.

There also will be a door prize drawing entitling the winner to two free dinners at the East Springfield Community Center's monthly fundraiser.

Mingo Seniors

Center events set

The Mingo Junction Senior Center has announced the following activities:

Brilliant Lions

host zone meeting

Lions Zone 5 member clubs from Brilliant, Mingo Junction, Richmond, Smithfield, Steubenville and Toronto met Sept. 5 at the Brilliant Presbyterian Church with James Everson, Zone 5 chairman, presiding at the event hosted by the Brilliant club.

The dinner meeting served by church members included the attendance of District 13-G Gov. Greg Halley who addressed the clubs about the international Lions' theme - "Following Your Dream." He also noted that the general public knows most Lions by what he referred to as "good works from the bottom up."

Halley stressed that performing services in communities is important and encourages other citizens who see results to want to join the Lions and become part of that effort.

Laura Vanger of Camp Echoing Hills also was in attendance. Camp Echoing Hills provides a camping experience for 360 handicapped youth and adults annually. Support from Lions clubs and District 13-G made cabin remodeling at the camp possible.

Summer was a time of many projects for the Brilliant Lions, including building three handicapped ramps and helping with a blood drive that generated 25 units of blood.

The club joined with Wells Township to erect new welcome signs and park signs in place in addition to maintenance on one cemetery.

The club also purchased 40 trees for fourth-grade Foresters; contributed $240 to the Parade of Checks charities; donated $150 to the Brilliant Little League; sent $50 to the Sandy Hook Lions; turned in 240 pairs of glasses; and awarded two $250 scholarships to Buckeye Local graduates.

Forty-five club and family members attended a Pittsburgh Pirates game and will have their annual picnic on Wednesday at the Wells Township Community Park.

The club will host is major fundraiser, a pasta dinner, from noon to 2 p.m. on Nov. 3 at the Brilliant Presbyterian Church.

The Brilliant Lions meet at 6:30 p.m. on the first and third Thursday of the month at the Wells Township Community/Senior Center.
