Same Great Christmas Trees, New Location!
SPREAD THE WORD! The Lions Christmas Tree lot MOVED to behind the Ashland VFW at 311 Pleasant Street in Ashland. We are open every day 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. Special thanks to all the Lions and members of our community who made our move happen in time to open this season!
Food Drive success!
Ashland Lions food drive at Market Basket was a huge success. 90 boxes of food and needed goods along with some monetary donations went to the Ashland Food Pantry to benefit those in need. Special thanks to all our Lions volunteers, to Ashland Boy Scouts Troop 232 for unloading donations at the food pantry, and to our community for helping out your neighbors in need this holiday season.
Seniors, why not join us and other members of the community for breakfast? Senior Breakfasts are on the first Thursday of each month, held at the Ashland Senior Center, 162 West Union St in Ashland. This event runs through May.
Ashland Lions Meat Raffles turn 25
Ashland Lions will continue to celebrate 25 years of meat raffles! The next meat raffle will be held on January 8th 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! We have already collected over 100 coats this season! 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.
