The Morris Lions Club is a volunteer organization dedicated to leadership development through community service. The Morris Lions are local men and women who work together to answer the needs that challenge our community. They are most known for working to end preventable blindness and hearing loss.

Morris Lions participate in a vast variety of projects and concerns that are important to their community. These endeavors range from providing a park to providing much needed vision and hearing services to area residents that are unable to afford them.

The members of the Morris Lions Club are community-minded individuals who raise monies through fundraisers to help those in need in their community, regional and worldwide. Visit http://morrislionsclub.com for more details.

Parade on the Internet

For those who can’t make it downtown for the chicken dinner and parade, volunteer students from the Grundy Area Vocational Center will stream the parade live on the Internet.

The students, under the direction of teacher Joe Terrel, will use cameras set up at a location toward the center of the parade route along Liberty Street.

The parade will be streamed through the website www.highschoolcube.com. After accessing the website, search for Grundy Area Vocational Center to see the parade listed in the schedule. A link to the site is provided on the Corn Festival website at www.cornfestival.org.
