Avalon Lions Partner with Habitat for Humanity to help construct homes in their local community.

Avalon Lions HH Group

 

During September the Avalon Lions participated in the construction of a home for a family of five people in Whitesboro, NJ.

 

Most of the work was putting up vinyl siding on the home. The day was an opportunity for our chapter to get to know more about Habitat for Humanity and the great work this organization does to help people in Cape May County, NJ. All of the Lions who participated, agreed that the aches and pains felt the following day were worth it and wanted to return to see the house completed, a work second date is being arranged.  The Lions met with the new owner, a single mother with five children.

DEPTFORD TOWNSHIP & WESTVILLE LIONS CLUB:

 

lions club scooter1The Deptford Township and Westville Lions Clubs partnered to present a three wheel assisted mobility cart to a S.J. Vietman Vet.  

 

Pictured from L-R are 2nd Vice Gov. Lion Bob Freidel,  King Lion Jim Bernardo ( Deptford ) P.D.G. Lion Don Gill,  Dianna ( Mancuso) DiMarco and her husband Peter, and King Lion Bryan Miller ( Westille ). 

 

The Estate of Vince Mancuso made the donation of the three wheeler to the Deptford Lions Club.  When King Lion Jim received it the batteries were dead.  These batteries are expensive, so Lion Jim contacted Lion Don Gill and asked if his Club would go halves on the cost of replacing the batteries.  Answer,..you bet.  They were purchased and installed and it was thought all was well.  The batteries worked but the scooter didn't.  After a few weeks of adjustments and repairs they got it to functions perfectly.  Lions Logos were added, a Lions safety flag was installed and the three wheeler was deliver to the S.J. Veitman Vets  Assn. at the Deptford Abilities Solutions Cntr. on Rt 41 in Deptford.

 

PDG Don Gill who is also a S.J. Vietman Veteran Advocate had someone in mind for it even before it was delivered.  " We did a good thing here tonight " 2nd VG Bobo Freidel was quoted as saying, " it just feels right to assist one of our heros " Lion Don said.  Lions Bryan was a little more reserved his was "" ain't this cool "  This is the second time our Clubs have joined hands to perform and out of the box thinking project Jim said, we do it well together and we will do it again when the need arrives.  WE SERVE is our motto and we do it well. 

 

LIONS stands for Loving Indivuals Offering Neighbors Service.  Both clubs are always ready to welcome new people  into their ranks with the same attitude they have,  WE SERVE. 

 

If interested in joining, contact King Lion Bryan Miller of Westville on Facebook or King Lion Jim Bernardo on Facebook @ Deptford Township Lions.

 

Remember, when you see them out collecting give what you can, 100% of what Lions collect goes back into the community.
