The Penbrook Lions are looking for a few kind kids! We want to hear about kids age 18 and under being kind! Perhaps, they mow grass, shovel snow, or carry groceries for their neighbors. Please email and tell us about this kind kid! You can also submit their name in the Kindness Matters box on the bookshelves in the Community Buitding. Thanks. lionvickyd@gmoil.com
