Londonderry Area Tri-Mtn Lions donate $200.00 to local student Olav Pajala to attend STEM Camp at Babson College in Wellesley Ma.
The Floodbrook 6th grade student gave a presentation to the Londonderry Lions Club describing his past experience and what he is looking forward to at this summer’s National Youth Leadership Forum STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) Camp. When a student is accepted they are responsible for the tuition, his goal is to earn $200.00 per month toward tuition. He has been baking and selling Star Wars cookies and reaching out to friends and relatives to reach his goal.
National Youth Leadership Forum amps are a unique learning experience for bright, forward-thinking middle school students who will evolve into our next generation of innovators, engineers, doctors, forensic scientists, mathematicians, and physicists. During this six-day immersive experience, students learn by doing as they take part in hands-on simulations, workshops, and competitions, while making new friends and having unforgettable adventures as they plan for a "Mission to Mars."

Filling cupboards in the Deerfield Valley
By Chris Mays, Brattleboro Reformer
BRATTLEBORO — Mark Hanna has watched holiday food baskets go from being assembled in a small breezeway to the Old School Community Center gym.
"It's really an all-hands-on-deck kind of thing," the Whitingham-Halifax Lions Club president said Sunday after helping to provide almost 200 families with food before the holidays. "We try to set them up with quite a bit of food to fill their cupboards. They could be in severe need, maybe a little less."
He said club member Jen Betit-Engle put the program "on steroids" after she began running it and got the Rotary Club of the Deerfield Valley and the Vermont Food Bank involved.
