The First Friday Social will be held Friday from 5:30-7 p.m. at MainSource Bank, 101 E. Elm St., Union City, Ohio. Snacks, soft drinks and bottled water will be available.

Union City Lion Program Chair Hoddy Speight, introduced Shelly King, PAWS Animal Rescue and Shelter director, at the regular meeting on Feb. 23. Shelly presented a program to familiarize the club with the overall operation of PAWS which stands for Pets Are Worth Saving. She explained the PAWS Shelter build in 2012 is a dog rescue operation that finds homes for every animal. The PETS have been adopted by people from all over the Midwest and Eastern United States.

Funding for PAWS comes from individual donations as well as corporate and civic organizations. Fundraising events include: Lights and Flights, Pizza Buffet, can collection, and Bingo. Also, there is a $90 adoption fee which goes to offset veterinarian bills, and general maintenance expenses. PAWS welcome anyone who would like to volunteer to help with this project.
