March and April

We continue to have a combined Board and Business Meeting via Zoom, but are hoping to resume twice a month meetings in person in May. It will be so good to see people in person.

Towards the end of Reading Month (March) in the schools, the Moultonborough Lions Club donated 284 books to the children at Moultonborough Central School. Since we could not distribute a book to each student in person, the teachers were kind enough to send some photos of the children with their books.

In March, we also donated money to the Lions Camp Pride facility in New Durham ( for a new water heater for the kitchen and some money to go towards the building of the new Pavilion.

Also, part of our national mission is pediatric cancer. The District developed a money calendar, the proceeds of which will go to the Make A Wish Foundation. Our club donated two $50 squares on the calendar. The raffle calendars should be available soon.

You know the saying, March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb? Well, the winds certainly did roar in March … and this first full week of April has certainly been spring-like with the budding of leaves on the trees and the appearance of iris and daffodil shoots. That also means it is time to get out and clean up the sides of the roads. On April 7, five Lions (Mark, Sarah, Chris, Kay and Sally) spent 2 hours and collected 20 bags of trash from alongside Route 25 between the Moultonborough and Meredith town lines in Center Harbor.
