COLCHESTER, Vt. A first of its kind service project, to help hungry Vermonters.
The Vermont District of Lion's Clubs gathered in Colchester for their annual cabinet meeting, but that wasn't all they did. Members from 33 Lion's Clubs, packed 10,000 meals at the Hampton Inn. They will be given to food shelves in each Club's town. The Vermont Lions raised $2,500 dollars to purchase the meals which included dried soy, rice, beans and veggies. Cabinet Secretary Carol Greene says the event is designed to unite the clubs in the bonds of friendship, good fellowship and mutual understanding as well as to help out those in need.
“It's a make you feel good feeling that you're being able to give back to your community and give back to those less fortunate,” said Greene.
Greene says she hopes to plan more service projects like this in the future, and encourages the public to join their local Lion's Club.
