Kindness defines who the Lions are and is demonstrated through their commitment to meeting the needs of their community.

On Saturday, April 6th, the Lions Club of Melita hosted a social to raise money to help the sick and provide disaster or accident relief.

Melita Lions Club member, Eleanor Renwick, spoke about the event.

“Basically we’re doing a fundraiser for the community. If someone knows people sick or affected by a disaster they can write a letter to the Lions Club.”

“We need a letter from someone to tell us that someone could use financial assistance”, added Renwick.

For the event, the Lions hired the band Armadillo and organized a bag auction, silent auction and live auction.

“People were generous”, Renwick says, “Everybody seemed to have a good time.”
