Burleson Lions Club Independence Day Parade 2020 Announcement of Postponement

The Burleson Lions Club would like to announce the POSTPONEMENT of our traditional 16th Annual Independence Day Parade scheduled for this Saturday, July 4th . This was a very difficult decision, However, in light of the current Covid 19 situation, The Lions Club has elected to postpone the parade in order to protect the health & safety of our participants, partners, first responders, Lions, volunteers and the citizens that have supported the Lions Club and this parade for the past 15 years. Last Friday, Governor Abbott released new guidelines and orders with regard to large gatherings as a result to the significant uptick in Covid 19 cases. This Monday, City Leadership approached the Lions about safety measures and consideration to postpone the parade to a later date. Lions Leadership was amenable to the idea of postponing and the suggestion of combining the Independence Day Parade with the Veterans Day celebration already scheduled for November 7 th, But, ONLY IF the same recommendation applied for the CITY FIRE WORKS display. Today, Burleson Mayor Ken Shetter recommended and agreed to postpone the fireworks and combine the celebrations into a joint partnership event on Veterans Day. Given the current situation with Covid 19, we feel this is the best decision for all concerned. We are pleased to honor our Veterans on November 7th and hope that all our past supporters and participants will join us. We would like to thank all those Patriots, Citizens, Sponsors & Participants that have stood by our side during these uncertain times and look forward to your continued support as we plan for the future. The Lions Club also looks forward to building a better working partnership with City Leadership in the future. Happy Independence Day and let’s start preparing for a really big celebration on November 7th!

   The Lions Club float in the annual New Year's Day parade in Pasadena, California highlighted the vision screening of young people by the Lions Club.

   During 2019 the Burleson Lions Club screened the vision and hearing of young people in the Burleson area. More than 4,000 were screened in 10 elementary schools, private schools, a Day Care, a Middle School, and new students to the district in one High School. Several of our members are state certified to do this in both the public schools and in private schools. Some students were referred for follow up to receive glasses or for further hearing testing. These referrals were offered at no cost to the the students or their families.We also sponsor young people to attend the Texas Lions Camp each summer at no cost to the families. See details at www.lionscamp.com
