Community comes together

What a tremendous community we are lucky enough to live in! the fundraiser that was pulled together in a short amount of time for Anne Roberts on Friday, Sept. 21 was a giant success!

Two months ago, she learned the breast cancer she fought and beat 10 years ago had returned, only this time it turned out to be a very rare form of breast cancer and she was flown to Seattle for treatment.

It seems as I was born to be a Lion. As a child, the Lions Park was my playground and I ran around the Lions Den while my dad worked projects for his club, the Eagle River Lions. When I was old enough, I helped my dad behind the scenes on different Lions projects. After years of unofficially helping the Lions, I was approached with an opportunity to help my community through a Leo’s Club that was forming.
