Creston Lions Club hosting fundraising breakfast at TAPS

They may not be teenagers anymore if you check their birth certificates, but you would never know that if you observed what goes on at the Therapeutic Activation Program for Seniors at 402 22 Ave. S.

Run by a dedicated group of volunteers, this organization aims to provide a variety of activities geared for our seniors. It has become a networking location for seniors who simply want to get out and work with others with the same needs and desires.

TAPS constantly is raising money to keep the programs going. They have two buses to move the seniors, whose average age is over 80. One would think that an organization dedicated to our seniors would be free from the random acts of vandalism that the community is hit with from time to time. Unfortunately, TAPS had one of its buses damaged by vandals in a malicious way but volunteers have pitched in, some insurance was provided and the bus is now back in operation.

The Creston Lions Club is running the second of its fundraisers for TAPS on April 21. The Lions, along with some willing hands from TAPS, are putting on a Lions signature breakfast at TAPS from 8-11:30 a.m. For only $5. you get two pancakes, two sausages, two fried eggs, juice and coffee. The net proceeds after expenses will be donated to TAPS — you can help make a difference and you won’t have to cook breakfast either.
