February 2022

The weather remained cold for the most part and we continued to get snow which was great for the Sled Dog Races in Laconia and the Ice Fishing Derby in Meredith.

Since February had four of every day of the week, we had four Bingo games. Attendance has been low which has been a positive for the winners, but we are hoping to see more players as the daylight hours lengthen and the weather gets warmer.

Between January and February’s meetings, the Club donated almost three thousand dollars to various community organizations and we have paid out $9,000 in scholarships to the class of 2021 scholarship recipients.

Speaking of scholarship applications, this year’s application deadline for high school seniors who reside in Moultonborough, Sandwich, Center Harbor and Tuftonboro is April 23, 2020.

Thanks to people donating empty prescription pill bottles at Bingo, the Center Harbor Congregational Church, and the Moultonborough School District (as well as individuals giving them to Lions), we have collected another 400-500 bottles to be eventually distributed to third world countries.

SAVE THE DATE: Saturday, April 9, the Moultonborough Lions will be holding their first Penny Sale at the Moultonborough Function Hall (formerly know as the Lions Club). You are welcome to drop off items on Tuesdays between four and nine pm, or email Karen Baron (nahant56@gmail.com) who is in charge of the fundraiser. Ticket sales will be from 3pm-5pm when the drawings begin. Food will be available.
