  • Lions chapter comes to a close

    Members of the Yellow Springs Lions Club pose for a photo at the group’s farewell gala at the Senior Center on Nov. 4. The group is disbanding after 64 years of service to the community. The Lions’ activities included everything from repaving YSHS tennis courts to activities benefiting eyesight-related causes. “The whole concept is that we serve,” said Yellow Springs Lion Griff Johnson. “Any money we made was put right back out into the community.” (photo by Dylan Taylor-Lehman)
