Presidents Message

Fellow Lions,

I have greatly enjoyed being a Lion over the years. Our organization is focused on serving both our local community and the Lions organization. Our service is known and respected.  One of the hallmarks of our local organization is our respect for every member’s contributions, whether large or small. As Lions we do what we can – and enjoy serving with each other as a group.

Projects such as South Lawson Park are tangible signs of what an organization like ours can accomplish as we work together.  I look forward to having a great year with all of you,

Lion Charlie Harris
President, Poquoson Lions Club 2014-2015

Poquoson Empty Stocking Fund Donation

To get the holiday giving season off to a good start, the Poquoson Lions Club made a recent donation to the Poquoson Empty Stocking Fund.  The Empty Stocking Fund accepts money and gift donations to help those in need during the Christmas holiday season.  Monetary contributions allow for the purchase items ranging from toys, clothing and shoes to bed linens, blankets and pillows.  The Poquoson Lions are proud to make a $1000 donation to this very worthy cause run by former City Councilman Frank Krieger and his wife MaDonna Kreiger. Accepting the donation is Frank Kreiger, left, from Lion Kathy Feigh of the Poquoson Lions Club.

COMMUNITY NEWS

We wanted to report that seven Lions were at South Lawson Park on November 13th to continue our beautification project. We helped Dominion Power where we could with their bollard project, then we installed two new Trex benches that we received from our plastic bag recycling efforts.  We put one down by the pond and the other by the swing sets.  After that we walked the park picking up any trash we could find.  Public Works took the trash bags away for us.  Lion Kathy will check to see why the benches we received from Trex are different. The bollards installed by Dominion Power really make the park look nice. Click here for more photos.
