Lord Baltimore Lions Celebrate High Achieving Elementary School Students

Lord Baltimore Lions Club members had the pleasure of paying tribute to some high performing students at the two elementary schools located in our service region. The Lions held a celebration party for “A” Students at both the John M. Clayton Elementary School on Feb 1 and then on February 2 at Lord Baltimore Elementary School. A total of 110 students were honored for their good grades during the recent marking period and each student received special congratulations from attending Lions. Each student was given a choice of a snack, refreshment and received a bookmark as well to honor their special achievements for this marking period. This is the second year that the Lord Baltimore Lions Club has partnered with both schools to pay tribute to our “A” Students at both elementary schools. Lions participating this year include Janet Parham, Pat Monahan, Joanne Withers, Pat Brinsfield, John Monahan, Jack Bauer and Lion President Janet Bauer. Special thanks to Ms. Jan Bomhardt at Clayton Elementary and Ms. Pamela Webb, Principal at Lord Baltimore Elementary and staffs at both schools for working closely with the Lions to make this such a special time for all.


Lord Baltimore Lions Club donates medical equipment to Ecuador

The Lord Baltimore Lions CLub has donated excess medical equipment to the Ecuadent Foundation.  For many years the Lord Baltimore Club has been providing free medical equipment to Sussex County residents in need.  In addition the Club receives donations of no longer needed equipment to help our cause.  With new equipment purchased through the graciousness of community grants, we have the ability to share our good fortune with others.

Lion Jack Bauer contacted the Ecuadent Foundation, based in Maryland, which provides free dental and medical services to children in Ecuador.  Through this program the Club has donated four wheelchairs, 12 sets of crutches and six walkers that will be delivered during Ecuadent's next mission trip in February of 2018.  In response to the donation, the foundation stated, "These items will help aid patients newly released from our care to return homewith their parents and finish healing."

LBLC Cook for Athletes at Camp Barnes

Submitted by Lion John Monahan

Members of the Lord Baltimore Lions once again had the pleasure of cooking hamburgers, cheeseburgers and hot dogs for the Special Olympic Athletes at Camp Barnes on Sunday, August 6 and Monday, August 14. The weather was beautiful and the spirit of the young athletes made this a memorable good time for the Lions and other volunteers who were able to serve on these days.

At least 8 Lions were on hand to work both shifts that featured the preparation and cooking of over 120 burgers plus hot dogs.

These special days were enhanced for all Lion volunteers as each of us received special volunteer shirts in appreciation for our efforts. The best part of the day for many of us is the special feelings we leave with hearing the thank you and seeing the smiles of these very nice young athletes.
