To the Editor:
A special thank you to all of the nice people who helped the McHenry Lions Club with their food drive for the local food pantry (FISH), and to Jewel Food Store and Angelo’s Market, which allowed the Lions Club to be at their places of business.
And thanks for all the Lions Club members who made it a huge success. This was the 13th time that we had the food drive – 13 carts of donations, $909 was collected. The next food drive will be in February.
On Oct. 8 and 9, the Lions Club had a successful candy day weekend, and I want to thank the 40 businesses that let the Lions Club have candy and a collection can in their places of business so the work of the Lions organization can continue to help the hearing- and sight-impaired. If any other business would like to have a can, please give me a call.
Speaking of the McHenry Lions Club, if anyone, male of female, is interested in what Lionism is, please call me at 815-385-2853.
