Members of the Grand Island Lions are conducting a survey. The objective of the survey is to gain input from the community on the existing efforts of service organizations and suggestions on areas to focus in the future.
The Lions Club is conducting this survey hoping to get many of the residents, community leaders and those with related expertise to participate. They are very willing to share any of the results they can gather so that not only the Lions Club but other organizations can utilize the information to improve their programs. The survey is posted on Survey Monkey and can be accessed via the following link: Click here to take survey
