April -2020

Please note that Bingo is still not able to be held. We will post here when we are able to meet as a group again and also on our Facebook page.

Certainly a strange and worrisome time for Moultonborough, NH, the USA and the world. We are very thankful for phones and computers that allow us to still keep in touch, with family, friends, and community members.

We were able to hold our April business via Zoom. This was a learning curve for many of us. Holding the meeting enabled us to continue making contributions to individuals in the community and to David’s House.

Although we were unable to host the Food Packaging Event because of the COVID 19 quarantining, the Outreach Program, a non-profit organization with whom the Lions coordinated and paid for the cost of materials and time to make these meals, volunteered to package the meals themselves and drop them off at a halfway point. Two of our Lions, Pete and Don, drove to southern New Hampshire to pick up the 46 boxes of pasta and tomato basil sauce (a total of 10,000 individual meals and brought them back to the Lions Club for distribution during the week of April 13.

For the rest of the week, members of the Food Packaging Committee (Peter Allen, Pete Strople, Dawn Law, Sally Sibulkin, Don Trudeau, and Michelle Duddy) delivered the boxes of food – 216 individual meals per box.  They were donated to Bridge House in Plymouth, Belknap House in Laconia, the Tamworth Food Pantry, the Agape Thrift Store and Pantries in West Ossipee and Center Harbor, the Calvary Bible Church Food Pantry in Meredith, the Meredith Emergency Food Pantry, Meals on Wheels in Moultonborough, both Inter-Lakes and Moultonborough School Districts (to be handed out with the free breakfast and lunch meals distributed to students), and Isaiah 61 Café in Laconia.

The Moultonborough Lions are glad that they were able to provide food to many of people in need at this time.
