Aberdeen Lions Annual Pancake Supper
Tuesday, March 27, 2018

Chairwoman Sandy reports that the Aberdeen Lions Club held a successful Pancake Supper Fundraiser at the Aberdeen High School.  "I want to thank everyone that came out to work and support this fundraiserChairwoman,   We served approximately 400 meals of which, 36 tickets were sold at the door and 83 were carryout. There were 33 Lions that worked and 8 Leos that helped. Thank you Lion Karin for working with the Leos - they were very helpful!   Many thanks goes to all that volunteered last night.  Special thanks to all that were at Harford Bank to load up the supplies and then unload and set up at the High School and then, reloaded the supplies for transport back to Harford Bank once clean-up was complete.  To those that set-up, prepped, worked, cleaned and broke-down the grills, you are the BEST; this is not as easy job!  Lion Terry Klein, you earn special Kudos for volunteering to work the grill!  King Lion Carol and Lion Bijoy, thank you for taking care of the dishwashing job (which is a hot and messy job!) after realizing that we needed help in that area."

Hope you enjoy the pictures taken by Lion Mark. 







Lions, you did a great job with ticket sales and the entire event.  Thank you for a job well done!

Lions Aluminum Cans Recycling

(10 years old!)

At the September Lions dinner meeting, Lions celebrated the 10th Anniversary of the Lions Aluminum Cans Recycling program.  Lion Mark presented a program highlighting several facts of this fundraiser.  In the last 10 years, 26,013 lbs (or over 13 tons) of aluminum were collected.  Lion Mark estimated that the public helped us collect 416,000 cans.  Additionally, 783 lbs or vinyl siding, 210 lbs of copper and 2538 lbs of steel were recycled. To honor the event, the tables' centerpeices were an aluminum can design. Lion Mark even displayed (with white gloves!) the first original receipt of monies gained from the can collection recycling program.  Afterwards, Past President Lambert presented Lion Mark with a Certificate of Appreciation.  To date, the recycling program has yielded over $22,000 in gross profits.
