Notes from the Den

The Amherst News - - SPORTS / COMMUNITY - BY LION LUKE WARD SPE­CIAL TO THE AMHERST NEWS

It’s time to help the com­mu­nity again.

The Springhill Lions Club will once again be ac­cept­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for the Toys For Tots pro­gram. Lions will be at the usual spot, 6 Mac­Far­lane St., (be­hind Food­land) where you can ap­ply, ev­ery Mon­day, Tues­day, and Wednes­day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Ap­pli­ca­tions close on Dec. 5 and the pick-up date is Dec. 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Please make sure to bring the health cards for the chil­dren ap­plied for, as well as proof of in­come.

We re­cently laid a wreath dur­ing this year’s Re­mem­brance Day cer­e­mony. It’s a somber time, of course, but it’s worth re­mem­ber­ing and ap­pre­ci­at­ing the sac­ri­fices of those who have given up so much for our well-be­ing.

A big thank you to ev­ery­one who vis­ited us on Hal­loween night for the Trunk or Treat event. It was great to see some friends out trick-or-treat­ing as well as the in­ven­tive cos­tumes out there. We hope ev­ery­one had a good time and got a nice haul to bring home!

From the streets:

“I re­mem­ber the Lions from the past, and the Lions of to­day, and they sure do a lot of amaz­ing work for our com­mu­nity! The com­mu­nity sure ben­e­fits from their mem­ber­ship.” - Anony­mous
