Lions Club Community Breakfast this Saturday
We are back! The Leavenworth Lions Club is extremely excited about resuming our Community Breakfasts in the Park. Beginning Saturday, June 26, we will be cooking up breakfasts from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. every 2nd and 4th Saturday into early October.
We are hoping to see many old friends and new friends come out to and enjoy a hearty all you can eat breakfast and fellowship. Dollars raised through the breakfasts funds Lions' initiatives for helping our local community; vision, hearing, diabetes and many more needs.
We are pleased to have the Lions Health Screening Unit available on June 26th for free health screening. The 62-foot-long, medically-equipped Lions Health Screening Unit (LHSU) travels throughout Washington and Northern Idaho to give free health screenings at schools, fairs, and other public events. Checking for glaucoma, diabetes, high blood pressure, and sight and hearing loss is key to interventions in potentially life-threatening health problems. The van will be available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Residents may see a helicopter flying low and slowly along transmission lines June 24-28, depending on weather conditions. The flight will follow power lines from Anderson Canyon in Peshastin to the top of Stevens Pass, and from Coles Corner to Lake Wenatchee and Plain.
The flight crew will use Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) technology to collect high-definition information about the lines and equipment, and to identify areas to trim back trees and vegetation away from the lines. The contractor will follow all guidelines established by the Federal Aviation Administration, and the aircraft will be operated by pilots specially trained for low-level flying.
