"It's our biggest fundraiser," Trumann Lions President Johnny Rye Jr. said of the barbecue.He said between $5,000 and $8,000 is raised each year at the barbecue which goes to support the civic club's sight and hearing work in the community.
Rye said the club annually provides $8,000 to $10,000 for sight and hearing assistance through Mid-South Lions Sight and Hearing Services in Memphis.Persons from the Trumann community who need specialized care for sight and hearing problems can have surgery or other treatments at no cost to them because of the Lions, Rye said.
Rye admitted that the money that is provided by the club each year is not enough to pay for the services that are given to folks who can't otherwise afford them.But, he pointed out, it is part of the overall work of Mid-South Lions and through special grants and various services provided at no cost by specialists.
"Without these services, there are a lot of people whose eyesight and hearing problems could not have been properly addressed," Rye said.
Teague's grocery store is a sort of clearing house where people who need assistance with sight and hearing services go, Rye said.Everyone knows Teague, he said, and that he is a member of the Lions Club and will do what he can to get people the help they need if possible.
