Christmas trees at the VFW
SPREAD THE WORD! The Lions Christmas Tree lot will be behind the Ashland VFW at 311 Pleasant Street 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 Meat Raffles are BACK
Ashland Lions will continue its tradition of meat raffles at TJs Food and Spirits in Ashland. Come join the fun on Saturday, November 5th 12-4pm. Early bird tickets before 12:30pm. There will be no raffle in December, but we’ll be back in the new year starting on January 7th. As always there will be great food, fun people and great meat to choose from. See you there!

Ashland Lions and Greater Ashland Lions will hold their annual Speech Contest at Ashland High School on November 17th. The contest is open to high school grade students living in Ashland or attending Ashland High School. This year’s topic is “Environmental Crisis: Fact or Fiction”. Winners will move on to the regional speech contest with a chance to advance to the statewide finals. Good luck to the contestants!
Coats for Kids (and Adults!)
Ashland Lions Club is partnering again with Anton’s Cleaners for the Coats for Kids and Families Drive. We are collecting warm winter coats for adults and children.  They will be cleaned by Anton’s Cleaners and made available to local nonprofits, social service agencies and schools to ensure that the coats are given to those who really need them, free of charge.
Coats can be dropped off in Ashland at Focus on Fitness, 290 Eliot St.; Ashland Fire Station, 70 Cedar St. and Cleaner’s Choice and Tailor, 193 Main St.
