DISABLED KIDS SWING WITH THE DIXIE LIONS!

  Early in September, the Dixie Lions Club donated and installed two high-quality handmade swings in the outdoor pavilion at the Children’s Center of Montgomery. Founded in 1948, the Center provides education and services to children and young adults with birth defects and other severe disabilities. “We have to raise our own funds for extras and wouldn’t have had these swings without the generosity of the Dixie Lions Club,” said Children’s Center Director Cynthia McCaghren; “The kids love them, now they can’t wait to go outside!”
Dixie Lions Jessie Rosa, Chuck Cole, Larry Bryant and Richard Penton prepare to install a swing in the pavilion.
Dixie Lions Roy Browder, Bill Sumners, Chuck Cole, Larry Bryant and Robert Carr hang one of the swings.
