Let's make our community a better place!
The Stow Munroe Falls Lions have co-sponsored the Stow Blood Drive for 12 years. The next drive will be held on November 2nd, 2021 at St. Stephen Lutheran Church, 3725 Kent Rd. from 1:00 to 7:30 PM. To donate call 1-800-733-2767 or go to RedCrossBlood.org and enter sponsor code STOWLIONS.to make an appointment. If you just show up without an appointment we will try our best to squeeze you in but please understand that may not be possible. All volunteers must wear facemasks and gloves. If you donate, your blood will be checked for the Coronavirus antibodies .
The results from our September 7 th Drive are now available. The Red Cross collected 60 pints of blood which they claim will save about 180 lives. A special thank you to the 9 Lions that donated over 27 hours of of volunteer time to support to the Red Cross.
Paw Fest 2021 is now in the history books for the Stow-Munroe Falls Lions Club!
A sunny, warm day welcomed hundreds and hundreds of dogs and their owners at Bow Wow Beach Dog Park in Stow, Ohio. Many dog-related vendors and animal rescue groups offered items for sale, information of their organizations and provided free treats to entice the canines. Speakers, Cinnamon Coulter from Pups Path and Barbara Pritchard, a dog park conservationist, spoke of their special interest working with dogs.
Several dog contests were a delight to all ages, especially from the help of Munroe Falls Mayor, James Armstrong and Stow’s Mayor John Pribonic with the measurements of the “Shortest Tails” and “Longest Tails”.
As the creator and chairman for the past 14 years, Lions Marty and Dick Dennis thank the hundreds of visitors to the park at Paw Fest, involvement with the Gift Raffle and the receipt of over 300 used eyeglasses (an annual project of the Lions).
Planning begins in January, 2022 for the next Paw Fest!
