SML Lions Club 2017 Peace Poster Winners

Each year, Lions International sponsors a Peace Poster contest. The SML Lions club has sponsored the contest at Benjamin Franklin Middle School for 16 years.   Each participant had to convey this year’s theme, “The Future of Peace”, without writing any words on the front of the poster.  The winners were (left to right):  Alyssa Legg, 1st place; Jordan Bernard, 2nd place; and Luke Sumner, 3rd place.  Also pictured are Freda Nichols, art teacher at Benjamin Franklin, and Kirk Sampson, District 24-E Peace Poster Chair.  The winners and their families were honored at the Club’s December 7th meeting.

Cathy Cummins of Children’s Assistive Technology Service (CATS) spoke at the SML Lions Club meeting Thursday, October 26 about their service providing no-cost pediatric rehabilitation equipment and devices to needy children and families in Virginia giving children with disabilities the ability to succeed at tasks otherwise unable or difficult to accomplish.
