distribute books at Parker Bennett Elementary School Rec Center.
A partnership was established with Parker Bennett Elementary School Recreation Center and the Lions Club. This parnership was kicked off on 13 February, 2014 with a celebration. The importance of literacy was discussed with the children and they were allowed to select a book to call their own. Refreshments were provided along with balloons and “goodie bags”. Parents were also appreciative after their kids were all “sugared up” and then sent home. The Lions Club will continue to work with the recreation center every other Thursday at 3:30.

Giving is a great benefit to the ones receiving, but those giving receive so much more. The Lions Club met on 21 February, 2014 at the Salvation Army Center to serve the residents. Hope was shared, friends were made, and an overall great time was had by all. The motto of the Lions Club is “We Serve”, and they lived up to that belief. The Lions Club will be back at the Salvation Army Center on 28 March, 2014.
