Oct. 13 and 14 have been designated as Lions of Illinois Foundation Candy Days in Sandwich. Members of the Sandwich Lions Club will be visible throughout the community in their bright yellow Candy Day aprons giving away candy rolls and accepting monetary donations in support of the Lions of Illinois Foundation's annual Candy Day fundraising project.

Funds the Sandwich Lions Club receives for Candy Day participation are used to provide assistance with eyeglasses, hearing aids, diabetes awareness, and other sight- and hearing-related projects.

To join the Lions in their fight against the effects of vision and hearing loss, call Sandwich Lions Club President Tom Martin at 815-498-3372.
