The holidays are always busy and so are the Lions.
On December 1, we will be decorating the building for Christmas so that all who use the building can get into the holiday season for the entire month.
On December 2 Lions Joe and Pat, Dawn, Joanne, John, Pete, Bob and Betty sold raffle tickets for the last time before the 1:00 drawing for the $5,000 prize. When the winning ticket was drawn by an elementary student from MCS, it belonged to a person in Massachusetts. We also be provided free vision screening at the Moultonborough Central School on that day to about 80 individuals.
We had two other vision screenings scheduled for the beginning of December: Tuftonboro Central School on the 4th and the Holderness Central School on the 5th. Between the two schools 270 elementary students were screened.
On Friday, December 8 the Moultonborough Lions and the Inter-Lakes Community Caregivers hosted the second Cookies and Caroling afternoon from 1-3:00. The amount and variety of the cookies was outstanding, baked by Lions and Caregivers. Check out the photo of all the cookies on the tables. Neighbors serviced by Community Caregivers and two area nursing homes enjoyed cocoa, cookies, caroling, led by Peter Allen, and a performance from a Moultonborough Academy choral group. To the delight of all, Pete Strople donned his Lion suit and handed out raffle prizes!
Several Lions — Mike and Kate Lancor, Don Trudeau and his wife, Bobbi, Joanne Lau, Dawn Law, and Michelle and Jim Duddy rang the Salvation Army bells at the Plymouth Walmart. Unfortunately bad weather canceled two other days of Lions bell ringers.
