The Oskaloosa Herald


The Oskaloosa Lions Club is offering local U.S. veterans a special opportunity to serve their community.

The Involve a U.S. Veteran program is a nationwide initiative sponsored by Lions Clubs International that offers qualified U.S. veterans an entrance fee waiver when joining a local Lions club.

Eligible veterans include retired U.S. military personnel or honorably-discharged members of the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard Services, Marines, National Guard, Navy or Reserves. Those currently serving in the National Guard or Reserves are also eligible.

To learn more about the Involve a U.S. Veteran program or Oskaloosa Lions Club, contact Club Membership Chair Debbie Doty at (641) 673-4173.

The Oskaloosa Lions Club meets the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in meeting room C on the third floor of the Oskaloosa Public Library. Their next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 12.
