DOWNTOWN AKRON — The Akron Host Lions Club invited members of the community to join them April 4 at the Akron Family Restaurant for the Lions World Lunch Relay.

According to event officials, the Lions World Lunch Relay offered an opportunity for residents to learn more about the Akron Host Lions Club, its work and opportunities to get involved. The World Lunch Relay took place all over the world, according to event officials.

Approximately 100 pounds of nonperishable food items were donated during the event, and the food will be donated to a pantry in Akron serving the economically disadvantaged blind community, according to event officials.

Shown above, from left, at the event are Kirk Olmstead, Doug Kelly, Ker Doh, James Stein, Sam Moats, Tom Lundberg and Dave Culbertson.
