The Chino Valley Lions Club traditionally donates money to the Food Bank especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas. This year, the Lions were able to present a $250 check to the Food Bank to help feed people in need at Thanksgiving. They will present another check in the same amount at Christmastime. Bottom photo, Whiskey the pup checks out fir trees that Prescott Valley Early Bird Lions John Lonas and Peter Berggren are reloading to take to the Chino Valley Lions' Christmas tree lot, after the shipment arrived a day early this past week. The Chino Valley Lions also received another load of trees fresh from Oregon Monday morning. Community support of fundraisers such as Christmas tree sales makes it possible for the Lions to support those in need. The tree lot is at 760 N. Highway 89 next to the Roadrunner Laundromat and Doug's Gas Station in Chino Valley. Hours are weekdays 2-6 p.m., weekends 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. Anyone interested in becoming a Lion should call Lee at 928-636 2626, or stop by the tree lot.
