Reading Action Program
Truro & District Lions Club is thrilled to co-sponsor, with the Truro Daily News, an exciting new literacy project. Each month, a new theme will be announced, along with an invitation for short story entries of 250 to 500 words in length. The project is supported by writers throughout the Maritimes, who have contributed copies of their books as prizes and will be sharing writing tips and thoughts on literacy with readers. Contest winners will be selected through online votes from Truro Daily News readers.
View contest rules and regulations, as well as a schedule of the first few themes, deadlines, and prizes. To submit your entry, click on the link below:
Diabetes Tag Days
Join Truro & District Lions at the Truro Mall on Saturday, November 22 or 29, from 10:00 to 4:00 in their campaign to raise funds for diabetes research. Nearly one in four Canadians are living with diabetes or pre-diabetes and 20 are diagnosed every hour of every day.
