The Campbell County Lions Club presented the family of Campbell County High School head football coach Justin Price with a check for $500 to help Price’s 2-year-old son, Jack, battle leukemia at their meeting on June 14.

“We know that you have expenses that this will not even touch, but if we can help in some small way, we’re happy to do that,” Campbell County Lions Club President Carol McDonald said.

Campbell County Lions Club First Vice President Roger Taylor presented the check to Justin Price, who accepted the check on behalf of his son, Jack.

“It’s overwhelming,” Price said. “The support from our whole community that we’ve received over the past nearly two year and the generosity of the Lions Club to our family is something that we’re very grateful for.”

Price says that the money will go toward whatever Jack needs.

“What we hear from people that give to us, is that they want to make sure that our family has what we need so that Jack has what he needs, and we’re very thankful for that,” Price said. “This journey is something that we’ve been dealing with for sometime, and I think we have a little bit more ahead of us.”

Jack was diagnosed with leukemia in August 2019 when he was roughly five months old. Jack was treated and entered remission; however, on April 22, 2021, Jack had officially relapsed.

Campbell County Lions Annual Carnival

After many months, the Campbell County Lions hosted their Annual Carnival. This event provides most of the funds for the various activities that benefit the community.

The community seemed delighted, to experience the carnival once again even though it was smaller and provided only 2 games and no food or drinks. It was a new carnival, and the Lions didn’t know what to expect when it arrived, but they jumped to the task and provided food and drinks for the community.

8 Lions participated in this event that served approximately 4,000 plus people.
