ELKMONT, AL (WAFF) -

Dickey Hobbs says he served the Lions Club as president three times. Now he is the sight chairman.  

He says the Lions Club is very community oriented, serving the people in and around Elkmont.    

"We do two scholarships every year, the lions club to the high school seniors, and we do not necessarily want an A student. We try to get a student that has some ability to be community oriented and will come back and serve."

He says there are times they just want folks to know they are there. The Lions Club also sells tickets to football games for the exposure.

Hobbs also says they sponsor the Christmas parade.   

"We support all the scouting, cub scouts, the cross country team and the robotics team."

Having our sight is something a lot of us take for granted but the Lions Club works hard to make sure they keep the proper perspective in focus.

While they concentrate on sight related issues, Hobbs says they step up to the plate whenever they are needed.  

"We put all the playground equipment up at the school one time. All of the new equipment, the Lions Club done."

He says they do anything they can to help the community.   

"We have sold brooms and mops, we have done that door to door for years ."

Continuing to keep their eye on the needs of the community in Bobby's Bama.
