April, May and June

In spite of two April snowstorms (giving us more snow in those two storms than all winter), spring finally came to Moultonborough, NH. The bears woke up and so did the Lions with our service activities.

In April, we began our Monday board and business meetings in person, and started our dinner meetings on the third Monday of the month. There were five Tuesdays in the month, so that made five Bingo nights. April is also the time to clean up the roadsides in Center Harbor (18 bags of trash collected) and Moultonborough — we are now doing Route 25 in Moultonborough from Blake Road to Aubuchon’s (43 bags of trash collected over two days).

In May, the scholarship committee met and selected seven students (from applicants living in Moultonborough, Center Harbor, Sandwich, and Tuftonboro) to received a total of $13,000 worth of scholarships to be paid at the beginning of the students’ second semester. We continue our cleaning routine by thoroughly cleaning our adopted bunkhouse at Camp Pride

And with the help of Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts from the Moultonborough Troop and Pack, we collected a little over $1400 to give to organizations which help the blind during our White Cane Day project.

In June, after Lion Pete Strople planted annual flowers in the upper part of Sutherland Park in Moultonborough, we began our weekly routine on weeding and watering by various Lion members.

We also finished up donating individual books to all the elementary students in Moultonborough, Sandwich, and Tuftonboro, by distributing 82 books to students in Tuftonboro.

At our dinner meeting we had speakers from Moultonborough Village Savings Bank, including Dwight Berry who initiated the informative presentation about Frauds and Scams and what we can do and what we should not do.
