"Cram the Van" is a Big Success"
Our Lions Club held its first annual "Cram the Van" event during Waterloo School's Open House on August 25th. Lions Diane Makruski, Cathy Magno, Pat Daley, Bob Moledor and Ken Breedlove stuffed two vans with school supplies for needy kids. In all, the event realized approximately 12 large plastic utility bags with school items. By everyone's estimation, this was a very good turn out for a first effort. These items were divided between the elementary, middle and high schools for distribution to students who's families who have financial difficulty. Additionally, there were cash donations of $60.00. Lion Diane polled the secretarial staff and listed additional items that were needed. These items were purchased with the funds and dropped off at the school. Lion Pam Merck also assisted in this effort by making phone calls for cash donations. Congratulations go out to the Community Outreach Committee and our other hard working Lions who made this event a success.
