March 21, 2007

CLEAR SPRING - Bad weather forced the postponement of the Clear Spring Lions Club's 56th annual Minstrel/Variety Show which was to have opened last weekend.

The show has been rescheduled for Friday, March 23, and Saturday, March 24, at 8 p.m. and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 25.

In addition to a variety of favorite popular songs, skits will be put on by costumed Lions members.

The show is the Lions Club's largest fundraiser of the year and helps support scholarship awards, eye examinations, eyeglasses for needy children, scouting programs, youth soccer, Little League baseball, school bands, athletics and libraries, diabetes screening, food banks, fire and rescue companies and other causes.
