Lions sell plants to aid children’s hearing tests

The Maplewood North Lions Club will sell a variety of annual flowers, bedding plants and hanging-basket plants at its upcoming plant sales at the parking lot just northeast of Upper 51st Street and Highway 120 in Oakdale. Sales are scheduled:

• Friday, May 8, 3-8 p.m.
• Saturday, May 9, 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
• Friday, May 15, 3-8 p.m.
• Saturday, May 16, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m
• Sunday, May 17: 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Club president Robert Olson and event organizer Denise Hess explain that all proceeds will go toward purchasing new hearing diagnostic equipment for District 622's ECFE program. Preschool children have their hearing tested before attending kindergarten, but the ECFE program, with its classes and activities for families with children birth to age 3 can get to kids at much younger ages, Hess notes. "And the earlier the better to catch hearing problems and start working with them."

For more information about the plant sale or the purchase, call Hess at 651-399-6443.
