Oak Harbor Lions Club trailer has received a much-needed renovation courtesy of three local businesses.

The club uses the trailer for fundraisers to help community members with needs such as prescription eye glasses, eye surgery, hearing aids, medical equipment and wheelchair ramp installations.

The club also sponsors several other community programs, including the National Night Out, for which the trailer is essential.

The Home Depot, Frontier Building Supply and Les Schwab Tire Center pitched in for the repairs.

The Lions will use the newly renovated trailer for the club’s annual summer fruit sales at the Oak Harbor Rite Aid parking lot.

Volunteers Bill Cheaqui, Jim Trask, Roger Wisniewski, Bobbi Lorenson, Stan Grovdahl, Dennis Doll, Tom Bond, Don Hulett and Doug Jerome contributed more than 700 hours to complete the project.
