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.

Truro & District Lions sponsored several families through the Christmas Index program again this year. Below, Lion Barb balances a turkey for one of the families who received Christmas dinner with all the trimmings, and helps King Lion Sadie display the five foot cash register tape. A sincere thank you to Foodland staff for their assistance, and to Foodland management, which donated boxes of chocolates for each of the seven families on our Christmas list.
Lions Christmas Party
Santa was on hand on December 12 to see if Truro & District Lions were naughty or nice this year, but first we were treated to some special entertainemnt by a band from the centre communautaire francophone de Truro. The band, consisting of teacher Rick Hiltz, left, with students Abigail Hovey, Céline Thimot, Michael Mahoney, Julian Krizsan, Matthew Deagle, front, and Peter Betts and Branden Rice, at back, also performed at the “Noel Acadien” show at the Marigold Centre, on December 18.
Diabetes Tag Days
There was a great turnout of Lions on for the two Diabetes Tag Days in November, and shoppers were generous in their donations. Thank you!
