The Drums Lioness Lions Club recently visited patients at the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center Nursing Home in Wilkes-Barre. The residents were treated to coffee and donuts served by the Lions Club. This service project was keeping in mind the Lions’ motto, “We Serve”.

The Club made a $100 donation to the recent American Cancer Society telethon.  Two of our members also volunteered and answered telephones at the telethon.  Please remember this very worth cause!
Three students from the Valley Elementary/Middle School were recognized by the Drums Lioness/Lions Club for winning the annual Peace Poster Contest sponsored by the Club. The local contest was held in conjunction with Lions Clubs International’s 22nd Annual Peace Poster Contest and is one of the projects the Drums Lioness/Lions Club conducts to promote youth development. Local Peace Poster Contest winners were: First Place - Emma Hazelton, Second Place - Stephen Naulty and Third Place – Kasey Biever. Winners received a Certificate of Recognition and a cash prize from the Club.
The Peace Poster created by local winner, Emma Hazelton, was submitted by the Club to Lions District 14-W for judging and was awarded First Place over more than 400 entries from throughout Luzerne County. Emma’s Peace Poster then advanced to the next level where she earned Second Place honors in the statewide Peace Poster Contest sponsored by the Pennsylvania Lions Clubs. According to Jan Kelly, President of the Drums Lioness/Lions Club, “Members of the Club were delighted to learn that the local winner had done so well at the District and State levels. We extend our congratulations to Emma as well as the other contest winners on their achievement.”
