President’s message: Lion Michaelanne Kerrigan


The Lions year is just beginning and we are “roaring” already! We have three new “cubs” and are well on our way to a great year. We might be a small club and we might not get a huge write-up in the paper like other service clubs; but we help individual people in our community every day. We help people see, we help them hear and we help fill bellies. It might not be a glamorous job that makes headlines; but is very important none the less. I am very proud to be a Lion, and as we sell raffle tickets leading up to our Grocery Run in December, I want to encourage all of you to sell lots of tickets so we can assist the Chatham Outreach for Hunger in feeding Chatham-Kent.
