A rea­son to cel­e­brate

The Amherst News - - COMMUNITY - SUB­MIT­TED BY LION LUKE WARD

The Springhill Lions Club has good news!

It’s thrilled to con­firm the suc­cess of the Fill-A-Book­bag drive this year. Thanks to your kind do­na­tions, we were able to as­sist 27 lo­cal fam­i­lies with pre­par­ing for the new school year, pro­vid­ing bags, writ­ing uten­sils, binders, and other vi­tal tools for learn­ing. It’s al­ways a very re­ward­ing en­deav­our, and thanks again to all who con­trib­uted.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the win­ner of this year’s Duck Race, Justin Har­roun. Justin brings home a hefty $500 prize, as well as a tally in the win col­umn of the pres­ti­gious sport of duck rac­ing. Thank you to all who par­tic­i­pated in the event, and we wish you the best of luck for next year’s race.

We are also ex­cited for our an­nual visit from the dis­trict gover­nor this month. It’s al­ways great to have guests at our meet­ings, and also to keep in touch with other clubs and Lions, so to be able to do both at once is great. From the street: “Springhill Lions are awe­some! I un­der­stand they helped over 50 less for­tu­nate stu­dents this fall by sup­ply­ing them with book­bags and school sup­plies! They’re a busy group of ded­i­cated work­ers.” - Anony­mous
