Donation to the Harwinton Library

The family of Harwinton Lion Laura Samolis, who died suddenly in January, 2020, requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent in her name to the Harwinton Lions. This week, Club President and Treasurer Roland and Donna Perreault brought the donation to the Harwinton Library, which will be used to purchase large-print books containing book plates in Laura’s memory. The Club also donated funds for a coding program the library will offer to Harwinton youth. In this photo Harwinton Public Library Director Alice Freiler accepts the donation from Donna Perreault.


And what happens to your eyeglass/hearing aid donations?
