Colchester Lions & Food From the Heart
Colchester Lions coordinated several Food from the Heart Food Shelf collections at Dick Mazza’s General Store, Price Chopper/Market 32 and Dollar General in Malletts Bay Colchester during February/March.
Spearheaded by DG/Lion Ken Emery plus King Lion Carmelita Belisle, Lions Lois Johnson, Val Johnson and Michael Cabral, we collected and donated 962 pounds for our Colchester Community Food Shelf. This also included non-perishable items like dog and cat food, tooth paste and tooth brushes, paper towels, toilet paper, laundry detergent and household cleaners.
Please keep your local Food Shelves in mind at this time of year! - Lion Michael Cabral

We Serve AND Do Good Deeds!
- by Lion Michael Cabral
Colchester Lions Club joined with our Chartered Colchester Boy Scout Troop 601 on March 4 at a combined joint Dinner Meeting. Our objective was to have the Scouts, leaders, parents and Lions learn more about each other’s organization and how we complement each other - Scout’s mantra of ‘Do Good Deeds’ and Lion’s Motto ‘We Serve’ illustrate that so well.
We melded our opening with a brief Greeting to Lions, Scouts and families followed by the Scout Troop forming and posting of the Colors, Pledge of Allegiance, Scout Oath by the Scouts and the Lions provided the Invocation and a Lions Toast. Then, pizza, salad and dessert!
