The Sandy Spring Lions Club is proud to invite all local golfers to our yearly golf outing in honor of Lion John Howes on May 10th at Willow Springs Country Club.
The Lions would appreciate seeing some *ahem* new blood at our blood drive next week. We get plenty of repeat customers, whom we dearly appreciate, but are always looking to grow for the future.
The Sandy Spring Lions have begun our Christmas Tree sales. We hear there is a shortage this year, but that does not discourage us, and we have NOT raised our prices.
Come visit us at the old hospital grounds at 2901 Olney-Sandy Spring Road at the corner of 108 and Prince Philip Drive. We have all Fraser firs at a variety of sizes, priced accordingly. Our prices range from $25 to $80.
Our hours, as usual, are Thursday and Friday 2-7pm and Saturday and Sunday 10am-7pm. Sales will be very big this weekend so come by and check out our selection before it goes!
All money raised goes back to support the community.
The Sandy Spring Lions Club invites you to join us for a free vision and hearing screening on October 5th and 6th from 10am to 4pm in the Olney Shopping Centre next to EyeWorks.
Lion Meredith “Brother” Pattie brought this framed photo to our meeting tonight of all the students of Sherwood High School (from all grades) present for the photo in the 1931 school year. Included in the photo are Brother’s parents and uncle. Also included is the father of current member Brenda Finkel.
Brother is looking to donate the photo to Sherwood High School or the Sherwood High School alumni association, but was kind enough to share it with the club first.

Tonight’s program was presented by Joy Turner from the George and Georgianna Campbell Sandy Spring Slave Museum & African Art Gallery. The museum is located in the Freeman’s Village on Brooke Road in Sandy Spring.
The campus is very interactive. They start with a trip through Africa, with replica structures, African art, textiles, and musical instruments.
The museum continues on to the time of slavery with examples of bondage instruments and farm materials that you are allowed to touch to experience in a tactile way what things might have been like.
It tells the stories of the underground railroad, which it is believed went through Sandy Spring. The story then continues through manumission and emancipation of the local slaves.
The museum also contains a research library and stages free musical presentations.
Tours of the museum are available by appointment.
