The Edward Smith Mineola Lions Club had a busy summer of serving the community. The Club raised $27,000 at its annual “Taste of the Grape” wine tasting at the Cradle of Aviation Museum. The event was attended by over 200 supporters, who sampled the selection of fine wines, as well as the delicious foods donated by local restaurants. Proceeds from the event are donated to organizations such as the Guide Dog Foundation, Lions Long Island Eye Bank, Winthrop Diabetes Prevention Center and many community groups.
