Welcome to the home of .....

The Lower Lehigh Lions Club

 

Lions Helping Hand chairperson Ron Bechtel and Lion Scott Bechtel receive gift cards from the Weis Market management.  These cards will be used in our Helping Hand project.

In November of 2020, the Lower Lehigh Lions Club conducted the first half of "Helping Hands" for some needy families in the East Penn School District.  Thirty (30) families were selected by the counselors at the East Penn elementary schools to receive some gift cards to help celebrate the Thanksgiving season.  Each of the selected families was given an envelope containing a Thanksgiving greeting, a Lower Lehigh Lions trifold and two (2) Weis Market gift cards totaling $125.  The second half of this project will be conducted in December to assist 30 more families at Christmas time.  This ranks up there as one of our club's most precious projects.  Helping out people in neeed is especially important in this pandemic era.
