Welcome to our new 2014/15 Lionistic Year
Thank you to all who helped make our No Cost Clothing event (Aug 29/30) so successful this year! It was a great way to start us out in service to the community. The costs to run this event were minimal - a 100ft clothesline rope and 24 xl hd clear plastic bags for the cleanup afterwards. We happened to find $50 donation at back of collection van which was used as a deposit on the town sign and later to cover those expenses. Yay. Herb McKelvey also donated $5 toward the lions club for this project to me at my work.
