Lions Club replaces sign
Barry Cook, president of the Lions Club in Price, with the help of member Al Jardine and his daughter, is replacing a sign on the Carbon County Airport Pavilion. This sparkling new sign is replacing an existing sun faded sign.
The club partnered with Carbon County 12 years ago to build and do maintenance on a Carbon County pavilion just off the runway about one half block south of the airport main office. The facility has two bathrooms, one for women and one for men, a kitchen for meal preparation and clean-up, and large tables under a covered patio. This facility has been host to the smoke jumpers who put out forest fires and need to load into helicopters, Boy Scout of America local troops for camp outs and host to many birthday parties and anniversary gatherings. The local Price Lions Club also uses this building as a meeting place for many of their monthly meetings, utilizing this time keeping the facility clean and ready for local residents who wish to use it at no expense. The keys to unlock this facility can be picked up and returned from the airport staff at the Carbon County office window.
In order to fund this and other projects, fund raising events are conducted each year. This years up and coming fund raising event for the club will be during International Days. The all-you- can-eat chuck wagon breakfast menu will be eggs, sausage, melons, pancakes, juice, milk or coffee, and will be held at the Washington Park facility on July 31 from 7 to 10 a.m. The cost will be four dollars a person and will be cooked by the members of the club.
The members of the Price Lions Club service organization have been very active for over 60 years in Carbon County. The members are dedicated to making Carbon County a better place to live, work, and retire. Dr Barry Cook, Price Lions Club president, and the club members wish to thank those that continue to support our projects and fundraisers each year. The International Lions Organization's motto is "We serve", and the Price club continues to be active and reactive to the community and the changing times.
