Barbers Hill Lions Club volunteers have place over 200 flags at neighbors‘ yards on patriotic holidays; and this November 11, flags will be erected again to celebrate Veterans Day.

The Barbers Hill Lions Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing services in the local community and to Lions projects worldwide. Some of the local Lions projects include:

•Providing eye glasses for Barbers Hill students in need

• Assisting the Mont Belvieu Food Pantry

• Supporting children with disabilities to attend the Texas Lions Camp

Lion volunteers place flags throughout West Chambers County on patriotic holidays to raise money to support their services to the community. The beautiful American flags are placed in front of homes on Veterans Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Presidents’ Day, Flag Day, Labor Day through Patriot Day (Sept. 11) and Independence Day.

The Barbers Hill Lions volunteers set up the flags before these patriotic holidays, remove them afterward, and store them all year for residents for $35.00 per flag per year.
