    The LEOs do it all
     
    The LEOs are a youth community service group who hold a pancake breakfast and bake sale to raise funds for the Relay for Life. They sold luminaries for the Relay for Life, which will be held on May 16 at Smith Park from 5 p.m. to midnight.
    LEOs do carwashes, garage sales and pizza sales — the money they raise goes to scholarships, funding  and food for the food shelf and the Relay for Life. They also do highway ditch cleanup on Highway 7 and lots of fundraising for community and private needs.

    They are one of only two LEO Clubs in District 5M4 Lions.
     
    They have donated to Santa Anonymous and have shopped for needy families at Christmas. There are 20 youth currently in the club, and anyone age 10 to 18 is a welcome member. The meetings are held on the fourth Monday of every month.
     
    On March 28, the LEOs will begin their door to door food drive by putting bags in front of doors. The next Saturday, April 5, the LEOs will return to pick up the donated items homeowners leave on their front step.
