&uot;The way it came about is I was at a conference in Mobile and Lucy Baxley was there,&uot; he said. &uot;She addressed the County Commission Association. I called her and asked her if she would be willing to come to Greenville and speak to the Lion’s Club.

She most graciously accepted and we look forward to it.&uot;

McWilliams said the Lions are excited about her visit and knows her keynote address will be interesting and enlightening.

&uot;We know it will be a great day,&uot; McWilliams said. &uot;She is a very exciting person to be around. She doesn’t meet a stranger and is very well versed in all areas of city and county government.&uot;

The Lions don’t want to be selfish with Baxley and are inviting the public to join them for lunch with the lieutenant governor.

Tickets for the event are $7 and reservations can be made by calling the Greenville Chamber of Commerce at 382-3251.

Please call by Monday, Oct. 18th, which is the deadline.
