October 2021

October was a busy month for the Moultonborough Lions.

We did one last roadside cleanup before the “snow flies.” Doing the stretch of road in Sandwich much used by Fairgoers. And on that same date, October 23, we stuffed, sealed, and stamped 888 letters with information about what the club does and raffle tickets. We had earlier had the last in-person sales of raffle tickets in front of Heath’s.

We did the fall cleaning at our adopted bunkhouse at Camp Pride, which included sanitizing the mattresses ….

We voted to purchase $500 worth of food for the Meals on Wheels annual Harvest Dinner. And individual members bought new socks which we will donate to homeless teenagers through Waypoint. The socks will be brought to the District 44H meeting in November and then distributed to Waypoints from all the Clubs in the District.

Peter Allen has already ordered and received the books for the Moultonborough Central School and is waiting to hear from Tuftonboro and Sandwich. The books will be distributed when each school selects a date.

And of course, Bingo continues. Because of all the new rules and changes made by the NH Gaming Commission, we are one of the few Bingo games left in the area. We would love to see even more people attend. Doors open at 5 pm on Tuesday nights at the Moultonborough Function Hall (formerly known as the Moultonborough Lions Club).
