Fellow Lions,

Here is another example of how the Chestertown Community works together to make the Lions Christmas Basket program a success. We could not do it without everyone’s help. Thanks for a great job.

Ms. Ranviile’s helpers from Garnett elementary who helped Matt Kempel and myself load up for delivery to Worton.  Ms. Ranville has run the food drive at Garnett the last couple of years and every year fills our trailer. She does a great job and deserves a round of applause.

Details of Chestertown Lions Club Drive for Sight Program

Fellow Lions,

One of the major challenges of Kent County is the lack of adequate public transportation.  To help alleviate this problem, the Chestertown Lions Club implemented a service project several years ago to support local residents in need of transportation to their eye doctor.  The program provides free transportation to and from the eye doctor.  This project has been very successful thanks to Chairman Henry Hart and his committee for distributing information about the program and responding to calls for transportation.

In an effort to make this free transportation service available to more Kent County residents, Chairman Hart has documented the program in detail to show all of the Club members how easy it is to become a driver and hopes to involve other Lions Clubs.
Please take a look at details attached of the Drive for Sight Program and the Need a Free Ride To And From Your Eye Doctor Appointment Form.  If you would like to become a driver please let Chairman Hart or me know.
When there is a need, Lions are there.  Thanks, Lion Henry Hart!!

Annual Fall Shotgun Raffle

Fellow Lions,

Under the leadership of Chair Fred Sherriff, the Annual Shotgun Raffle is one of the Lions Club major fundraisers.  This year, we added 500 tickets for a total of 5,000.  To sell all of these tickets we need everyone to serve multiple times, and remember you have to ask for the order, not wait for them to come to you.  Chair Fred does a great job of organizing and coordinating 5 sales teams which sell most weekends starting in September and ending in December.
Most weekends, Lions can be seen selling tickets at Molly’s, JBK’s, The Mill in Kingstown, and the Farmers Market.  We will have to work hard to make this year’s target.  If you could help again let Chair Fred know.

Thanks for all you do.
