Club News: MUFON, Christian Women, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War

The Fayetteville Lions Club, in conjunction with Lions Clubs International, sponsored an art contest for kids, known as the Lions International Peace Poster Contest. This art contest encourages young people worldwide to express their visions of peace. Fayetteville Lions Club has conducted a contest locally for seven years. The theme of the 2023-24 contest is “Dare to Dream.” Students from three schools and the Boys & Girls Club submitted 46 art works for the competition. The four local winners and their teachers were recognized at a recent Lions Club lunch meeting. Their posters will be sent to a Lions Club District 7-I competition, with the district winner advancing to the Arkansas state competition. Assisting Lions Danny Walters and Sydney Bailey with the judging was retired Fayetteville Holcomb Elementary school teacher, Julie Brant.
