In the spring the Salina Lions Club started a new project of providing food for those in need. We contacted the Senior Citizens group and churches. They provided us with a number and we handed out 17 baskets. We just completed our fall food basket project, November 24, and delivered 28 baskets. We hope to continue this project with more baskets each time. We do this project twice a year.
Earlier this fall we handed out 96 student dictionaries to third grade students at the Salina Elementary School.
We participated in the Peace Poster contest again this year with the North Sevier Middle School. We awarded three winners with cash awards of $ 75.00 for 1st place, $ 50.00 for 2nd place and $ 25.00 for 3rd place.
The big project the Club has spearheaded is the Salina Veterans Memorial Park. This has been a three year project. We just had the dedication of the Memorial on Saturday, November 15.
In January we are scheduled to hand out copies of the Constitution to the 8th grade students at the North Sevier Middle School.
