U of O Lions Complete Major Service Project

The University of Oregon Lions Club first came together in October 2016. They became a Branch Club of Eugene Downtown in May 2017. Although the club is small, six members, they are very active. They have volunteered with Walama Restoration, restoring habitat near the Willamette River; volunteered with FOOD for Lane County, and volunteered at historic Pioneer Cemetery on the U of O campus. Members of the club participated in the District 36R Conference in February, the Keep the Promise Breakfast in April and assisted Eugene Downtown serving ice cream at the MD36 Convention.

The last two weekends in May and the first weekend in June they completed their first major service project – installing a granite bench at Pioneer Cemetery. On May 19th they prepared the bench site, digging the base, building the frame and laying gravel for drainage. On May 26th they poured the concrete for the base. Finally, on June 2nd, they installed the bench on the base. Needless to say, the student Lions are justly proud of the work they have done and the contribution they have made to the historic cemetery.
