         The Lions Club is proud to announce that New Fairfield Leo Member, Julissa Tomaino, was the Grand Prize winner for the 2020 HRRA Recycling Billboard    Contest. There were over 2000 students who entered the contest in Connecticut. Her artwork, with her name, town & school will be displayed on the back of 10 HARTransit buses in the Danbury area from June to July. There was a full color page of all the winners artwork in Sunday edition of the CT News-Times on April 26, 2020. New Fairfield First Selectman, Pat Del Monaco & the HRRA committee presented Julissa with the award during a ceremony on Wednesday, April 22, 2020 via a Zoom Presentation. Julissa Tomaino received a check for $500 for being the Grand Prize winner and our New Fairfield Town's Recycling program also received a check for $500 since the winning artwork was from New Fairfield.

     This is the second time Julissa has been named the Grand Prize winner of the HRRA Billboard contest. She won in 2018 and had her artwork & name displayed on a billboard on Route 37 next to Jeffrey's Chinese Restaurant in Danbury & another billboard in Danbury near the DMV for 3 months.

We are very proud of Julissa! 💙🦁💛


 “A Snack On Us” bags to Danbury Hospital              

The New Fairfield Lion’s and Leo’s clubs worked together to bring 200 bags to Danbury Hospital. The bags were distributed among multiple departments including Housekeeping, Lab, EMS, Security, Case Managers, Multi-Specialists, Pharmacy and the Lobby Info Desk Staff. “Cannot thank you enough for the wonderful snack bags-they are bringing smiles to a lot of faces- I can see it in their eyes!” Said Susan M. Kania, Senior Director, Strategic Initiatives and Events who at the hospital, pictured here with the flowers, has been working very hard as the liaison between organizations and the hospital staff. Even during this time of quarantine, the Lion’s and Leo’s are trying to do what we can to continue our “We Serve” motto to help make our community better. 💙🦁💛
