New home for Christmas trees!
Lion Dan Mitchell
SPREAD THE WORD! The Lions Christmas Tree lot is moving to behind the Ashland VFW at 311 Pleasant St. in Ashland. We will be open starting the day after Thanksgiving and be open until we sell out. Please consider buying your fresh Christmas tree from the Ashland Lions this year and donate to a great cause. Remember, Lions give back 100% of fundraising to eye research and the local community.
Ashland Lions will hold a Food Drive on Saturday, November 13th 12-2pm at Market Basket on Pond St in Ashland. Donations will go to the Ashland Food Pantry to benefit those in need. Stop by and see us and make a food or household goods donation to help your neighbors in need this holiday season.
Ashland Lions Meat Raffles turn 25
Ashland Lions will continue to celebrate 25 years of meat raffles with our last of the calendar year. The next meat raffle will be held on December 4th at TJs Food and Spirits in Ashland. As always there will be great food, fun people and great meat to choose from. See you there!
Coats for Kids
Lions Club District 33K clubs are partnering with Anton’s Cleaners again this year for their annual Coats for Kids drive! Please search your closets for unused and ask your friends and neighbors to do the same. The weather is getting colder and this is a good opportunity to help those in need. The coats can be for children or adults and must in good condition- that means gently worn, no rips, tears, broken zippers or permanent stains. Coats may be dropped off at any Anton’s Cleaners or at Cleaner’s Choice, 193 Main St. Ashland, MA.

Thanks all around to our community!
We would like to thank those who supported the Ashland Lions through your participation and donations to our recent fundraising events. After postponing for a year, our Murder Mystery event was a big success, and we were finally able to hold our annual golf tournament. Thank you to our community for all your support!
