The Red Bud Lions Club’s recent “Spring for Life” barbecue to benefit Life Network of Southern Illinois was a huge success. Due to the perfect weather and the generous outpouring of support from the Red Bud community – with donations over and above the cost of the meals and baked goods – the club was able to raise a total of $3,002. The Lions coordinated a Thrivent Action Team event and with the help of Southwestern Illinois Lutherans for Life, who provided desserts, were proud to present a check to Life Network of Southern Illinois at their Red Bud facility located at 324 North Main Street. Pictured at the presentation are: Lion Dave Wittenauer, Jennifer Roscow of Southwestern Illinois Lutherans for Life, Lion Mark Vogt, Life Network Director Debbie Geist, Lion Loren Harms and Greg Stellhorn of Thrivent Financial. Once again, the Lions appreciate the community for the overwhelming support.
