Lions and Rotarians join forces to paint The Gathering Place

Whitingham, VT  –  Recently, members of the Whitingham-Halifax Lions Club and the Rotary Club  of the Deerfield Valley joined together for a three-day volunteer painting project at The Gathering Place adult day care center in West Dover. Alison Ferris coordinated the effort from the Lions’ end, while Lions Steve Betit, Jeanette Felton and Mark Hanna provided equipment. The Gathering Place is a community resource for seniors and others who who need special care.  It provides meals, activities, socialization and even showers for special needs clients.

Here’s a link to a short, fun video Lion Patience Merriman made featuring Whitingham-Halifax Lions as they worked on this big project. You can see how fantastic the spirit was —  and how grateful The Gathering Place is to have their building looking so bright and new!  Hope you enjoy it!
