Greater Ashland Lions Club
Welcome 2021! We’ve been waiting for this year to come; 2020 was not the best year, but will be long remembered for many disappointments, anxiety and stress and sadness to too many of us, giving us the ability to survive and create new ways of communication and help those in need.
The Greater Ashland Lions wish you all the best of Health and a Prosperous new year, again “Thank You” to all our loyal supporters during this most difficult pandemic year whether it be a donation, attending a function or just say HELLO. We are anticipating a productive year with new and innovative and entertaining functions for all to enjoy. Please continue to read this column for future events that will be in line with safe guidelines, wear a mask and be safe.
