Over the weekend, the Ahwatukee Lions Club completed its quarterly service project by cleaning the sides along Pecos Road.

Three members of the Lions Club assisted with the community service project: Tony McLain, Jim Mooney and Mike Stolfa.

Stolfa, a member and Ahwatukee resident, said some of the trash picked up consisted of tobacco cans, water bottles and diapers.

The three members picked up trash along the side of Pecos Road from 32nd to 24th streets.

McLain, vice president, said the Lions Club was able to secure the area as a quarterly-service project with assistance from the city of Phoenix, and have been doing it for the past two years.

Mooney, president and an Ahwatukee resident, said he enjoyed receiving gratification from the people who bike along Pecos Road and wanted to do his part in keeping Ahwatukee a clean community.

“Everything is so clean here and we want to keep it that way,” Mooney said.

Along with their quarterly service project, Ahwatukee Lions Club also assists the less fortunate who have vision problems.

“We have an organization within Lions in Arizona, it’s called Arizona Vision Center, and we pay for glasses for families who can’t afford them,” McLain said. “We spend a lot of time raising money to buy glasses.”
