State's Lions Clubs holding rally in Columbia


COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Members of Lions Clubs across South Carolina are recognizing their humanitarian service with a rally in Columbia.

Several hundred club members are taking part in a rally at the Statehouse on Saturday. Republican state Sen Mike Fair from Greenville is scheduled to give a keynote address.

Last month, Lions Club members from around the state walked through cities, towns and communities as part of an initial effort to raise the organization's visibility.

Organizers say Lions Clubs International has more than 1.3 million members in more than 45,000 clubs around the world. Since 1917, the group has aided the blind and visually impaired and supported community and youth service efforts.
