Thank You for Tree of Giving and Food Baskets

Each year the Eagle River Lions gather food supplies from the local elementary school to assist in the preparation of 50 food baskets for the needy in our community. All with the can and dried goods, they provide each family with gift cards to purchase the meat of their choice. Our community was very supportive of this request for assistance allowing our club to provide the families with meals for the holiday seaon. Chugiak Lions raised money and provided food baskets to the Chugiak Children Services for each of their families to enjoy the holidays.

Thoughts for the New Year

A few days ago it was Christmas morning. For many people, excitement and smells of a holiday feast filled the air. Gifts were nestled under the tree wrapped in brightly colored paper and bows. Children were wide-eyed in awe of what was inside the box that had their name on it. Dazzling lights and sounds of jingle bells provided a backdrop to this much anticipated moment. It was a time for family and friends to come together, exchange gifts, feast, and for many to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

A Tale of Tails

More than 73 years ago, three Lions from Detroit, Mich. had a dream that they could build a school to train dogs for people who are blind or visually impaired. Lions from all over the world helped this dream come true. Over 14,500 people have left Leader Dog, walking proudly, safely and independently with a Leader Dog harness in their left hand full of Lion love in the form of a guide dog.
