Weekend Kid's Food Program: The board had a guest, Al Thompson, representing the Weekend Backpack Food Program in our community. The program is funded by the United Way and operated by local volunteers to provide meals for at need kid's in our community during the weekend. The program works with the local school district to determine needy families and the volunteers provide the means to distribute these packs of meals. Due to a growing need for this service, the United Way has only limited funds to provide and the volunteers are raising funds locally to keep this going. The board voted to donate the funds from the Car Show this summer, $500, to this project. We will be looking for other projects in the future to help with this worthy cause. The board would encourage any Lions who would like to help to donate to this cause or would like more information to contact Al Thompson 507-649-7682.
