"In November, we will be donating to the Community Cupboard for Thanksgiving Baskets. And for the first time our club will be selling chestnuts, cider, and cocoa at Christkindlmarkt (http://www.christkindlmarktleavenworth.com/home) the weekend of Thanksgiving. The hours are from 10am - 7pm Friday and Saturday and 10am - 3pm on Sunday. In Dec. we will be selling chestnuts, cider, and cocoa on Saturdays and Sundays of all three weekends of Christmas lighting. The new chestnut trailer should be done for the start of these busy four weekends, and everyone is excited to be working in it. The club will also collect food, toys, and money for families at Christmastime."

HELEN KELLER'S CHALLENGE
In 1925, Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become "Knights of the Blind". Since that day, Lions clubs throughout the world have been involved in helping the visually and hearing impaired. Glasses, white canes, helper dogs, eye surgeries, hearing aids and ear surgeries are constantly being donated to those in need.
