GBEM School Gets New Tables
March 13, 2017
The LIONS motto, “WHERE THERE’S A NEED THERE’S A LION” was once again met by the Durbin Lions Club for the Green Bank Elementary Middle School in Green Bank, WV. The school has been using old wooden folding tables for special events. The old tables were heavy to carry back and forth from the storage building, and had holes in them as well as splinters and snags. Lion Linda Stewart approached Mr. Sharp, the principal, asking if the school had a need in which the Lions might help. He didn’t hesitate to say they needed new six-foot folding tables. At the next Lions meeting the Durbin Lions agreed to purchase 20 new folding tables for the school. The tables were delivered on March 10th. The principal and teachers were very appreciative and are anxiously awaiting the next special occasion at the school to use them. THANK YOU, DURBIN LIONS!
Some middle school students helped unload and place the tables in the storage building. Durbin Lions who helped were (L to R) Carolyn Sheets, JP Alonso, Linda Stewart, Bob Sheets, Rick Wooddell and (not pictured) Charles Sheets. On the far right is Mr. Sharp, the school’s principal.
