On August 2, 2017 the Licking Lions Club held a drawing for a gun raffle fundraiser. Lions Club members had been selling tickets at various local events. The winner of the raffle drawing was David Herndon of Houston. Herndon picked up his new Taurus .380 pistol at Bullseye Pawn in Licking.
Proceeds from the raffle are put in the Licking Lions Club community help fund. This fund is used by the club to fund projects that directly benefit the local community.
The next regular meeting of the Licking Lions Club is scheduled for September 13, at 11:30 a.m. The meeting will be held at Bridge Builder’s on Green Street. Guests are welcome and encouraged to attend.
