Harbison Canyon Lions Club Seek More Members to Help Community

By the Alpine Chamber of Commerce

Maggie Lutz shopped for free items for her grandchildren on Oct. 6, 2018 in a rural parking lot on the eastern edge of El Cajon. Lutz was among dozens of people needing new or gently used clothing and other useful things donated to the Harbison Canyon Lions club’s Community Swap N Shop.

Held at Old Ironsides Park at 326 Harbison Canyon Road, mounds of items were available. Carefully holding children’s winter pajamas and a toy for her grandchildren, Lutz methodically searched every large pile of donations. “I’m glad they do it,” Lutz said about the Harbison Canyon Lions Club. “It’s a beautiful thing to help the community.”

Formed after the 2003 Cedar Fire that destroyed 287 out of 388 homes at the time in Harbison Canyon, the organization helped the small canyon community recover and rebuild. Over the years the club began providing the Swap N Shops and Santa’s Lions for families in need at Christmas.

The club, a member of the Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber of Commerce, also holds an annual student speakers’ contest with scholarships for winners, community Easter egg hunts, Christmas parties and dinner events.

In addition, the Harbison Canyon Lions have provided medical shower handles, a wheelchair lift, eyeglasses and vision screenings, said Past President Mary Manning and current President Dorothy Stewart. The club needs more members to continue providing help for the community, the women said.   “We have 10 volunteers, including two high school students who are doing community service, to help today,” Stewart said. “Any items left over today will have to be packed up to go to the Crisis House in El Cajon for abused, battered or pregnant women, and other charities.”

Holding out a welcoming hand toward the latest Swap N Shop,  Manning cheerfully said club members call it “Nordstrom East.” Every Swap N Shop has a unique item and club members look for anything unusual as they screen the donations.  “One of the funny things we got was a chair with no legs,” Manning said. “Gosh darn it —- somebody took it!”

Anyone interested in being a Harbison Canyon Lion can call (619) 445-5044 or e-mail edandmarym@cox.net for information.
