Fashion Funds Club's Community Efforts


The Lioness and Lions Clubs have been serving the Payson community for many years. Their largest fund-raiser to pay for their efforts is the annual fashion show, Fall into Fashion.

This year, the show will be at noon, Saturday, Oct. 7 at the United Methodist Church, 414 N. Easy St.


Members of the Lioness Club, President Phyllis Halvorsen, Secretary Gail Brown and Publicity Chair Sharon Offerman show off some of the clothing that will be featured in the club's annual fashion show Oct. 7.

For a $10 donation, guests will enjoy a chef's salad, a roll and butter, ice cream sundaes, tea and coffee, plus have a chance to win door prizes and see great fashions from Peggy's Payson Place, Corral West, Stage and the Past and Present Boutique.

The members of the clubs have been preparing for this year's fashion show since June. There will be a dozen models participating -- women, men and children.

There will also be membership information at the fashion show. The Lioness Club meets at 11 a.m. on the third Tuesday of the month at the Payson Airport's Crosswinds Restaurant.

The programs that benefit from the show and other Lioness and Lions fund-raisers include: The Leader Dog project for the blind, Rim Country Literacy, two different summer camps for children, Payson Helping Payson, Payson Community Kids and the Hugh O'Brien Youth scholarship.

The Payson Lioness Club was organized in the early 1980s (either 1980 or 1981) with 20 members. Three of the founding members still make their homes in Payson: Ora Bell Buckley, Lois McVey and Jeanne Meehan.

Tickets will also be available at the door.
