ST. CHARLES – A new stairway at the waterfowl observatory in St. Charles fits well with the Lions Club goals, said President Mike Robishaw—which is why the group decided to donate $1,000 to the project.

A brick stairway entrance over the dike now leads to the observatory. The project, which replaced a dangerous set of wooden stairs installed in 1988, was completed in mid-July, according to Village Manager Hal Mead.

The donation covered almost a third of the project’s total cost. The St. Charles Lions donated the money from some of their fundraising efforts.

The St. Charles Lions also made the observatory area their project during Beautification Day 2009.

The Lions Club also supports programs providing vision and other necessities for people in need, along with special needs clinics, the Leader Dog School for the Blind, scholarships and other local projects.
