1959: The Clovis Evening Lions Club had initiated a drive worthy of its name: It was raising money for the city zoo.

City officials had announced that funds for its zoo and parks department had been “running low” and city commissioners said there were no excess funds available that could be transferred.

So the Lions Club had set about to raise money to purchase 750 bales of hay and 12,000 pounds of grain.

In addition, the service club was rounding up 20 pounds of meat per day for the zoo population.
