ABOVE (left to right):  Lions Barry Buck, Rich Marcucci, Dave Burns and Pete Castillo began the early shifts at K Mart's south door on Saturday, December 14.  Thank goodness there wasn't much wind with the snow! It was plenty cold without it.  Lion Dave Burns did another awesome job coordinating this long term club service project.  Thanks Lion Dave!

Danielle Zechman, Advancement Officer at the Community Foundation of Lorain County, gave a very informative presentation about the work of the Community Foundation and updated us about the Lorain Lions Fund at the Foundation.
