Christmas Trees Available at Tenney Farm
It’s that time of year for all of us to get ready for the holidays and the Lions Club will once again be providing Christmas trees at Tenney Farm. We will be open with Lions Club members selling the trees on weekends starting Saturday, November 29 and will stay open until all of our Christmas trees are sold. Our hours will be from 9 am to 4 pm and we can provide assistance to make sure you get the right size tree you need for your home. Think about coming and getting your tree early as you will have the best selection to choose from.
Vision Screenings for 364 Children!
The Antrim Bennington Lions Club offered free vision screening for children in the towns of Antrim, Bennington, Francestown, Greenfield and Hancock the week of September 15, 2014. We tested children up to the fourth grade in these five schools along with children at The Grapevine. During Home and Harvest we also provided free eye screening at the Town Hall.
Christmas party - The party will be held on Wednesday, December 3 at Toll Booth Tavern in Francestown. We will be ordering off the menu. We will be having a Yankee Swap (spending limit is $10) and ask that everyone to please bring a non perishable item for the Food Pantry. It should be a fun evening.
The Antrim-Bennington Lions Club is a local, community service organization which is part of Lions Clubs International , the largest voluntary service organization in the world. Lions are an international network of 1.3 million men and women in 202 countries and geographic areas who work together to answer the needs that challenge communities around the world.
Our club was created in 1981 and has been providing services to the international and local community since that time. Our two major fund raising efforts (Home and Harvest BBQ and selling Christmas trees) provide funds for local efforts such as Operation Santa, Bike Rode and providing glasses for those in need. In addition we volunteer for hosting Community Suppers, vision screening for 4 to 6 year old children, holding Election forums and many more. Periodically our club takes on a major service project such as the Antrim Bennington Outdoor Guide, a 60 page guide to the outdoor resources of our communities that we published in 2009 and 2013.
Following are the Lions providing hotdogs, food and drinks at an Antrim in the Evening concert.
Lions club members are men and women who strive to make a difference in their local community as well as in communities worldwide.
