Lion Michelle Cassano

Past Zone Chair, Lion Michelle Cassano will be presenting to us on an overview of current diabetes information…including local services and research updates. This is also our day to support the Food Bank of Alask, please remember to bring in canned foods, or better yet , your $money$.

• This is the first Friday of the month, so PLEASE remember to bring in food or money donations to benefit food distribution through the Latino Lions Club. Food distribution will be held on Saturday, November 17th.

• We are also taking donations of Christmas stockings and stocking stuffers to benefit our Alaskan men & Women who are in Iraq and Afghanistan serving our country. So please bring in items to support this great effort.

• We are still taking donations for Edwin, our faithful server there at the Millennium. We were initially taking it as a Christmas donation, but recently found out that he is pretty sure that he will have to return to his country, Nicaragua to renew his visa, and he may not be able to come back. We would like to show him our appreciation for his service.
