Taking the lead on our fight against cancer
Orleans Lions held a dance on September 9th to raise money for the Mary E Wright Halo Foundation. Orleans Lions raised $1,950.00 that was donated directly to the Foundation. The MEW Halo Foundation is a non-profit organization started in 2011 by Mary Wright's family who recognized a need to assist people who had been diagnosed with cancer. 100% of all donations are used to assist cancer patients in Orleans County. The event was held in Lion Dan Malure's barn in Barton, VT.

Fall Cabinet Meeting Service Project
I am writing to ask your club for a donation toward a service project to be held at the Fall Cabinet Meeting November 4th. Attendees, working in partnership with The Outreach Program will produce 10,000 meals which attendees can then donate to their local food shelves or the Vermont Food Bank. The project will take about 2 hours, still giving you a few hours to relax before the LCIF Super Raffle. It’s going to be a lot of fun and will support hunger relief at home and abroad! Here's how it works...
The cost of this project is $2,500. Therefore, I am asking each club to consider donating $75 (or more) toward the cost of this project. Please make your checks payable to Vermont District 45 Lions and send to me directly at: CS Lion Carol Greene, PO Box 92, S Royalton, VT 05068. Please let me know no later than October 14, if your club would like to donate to this District 45 project.
