News from the Rehoboth Lions

Posted

Welcome to April -

**The Rehoboth Lions will be holding a food drive to benefit the Rehoboth Food Pantry on May 4th. We have 4 convenient drop off spots (thank you!!) in town to drop off your non perishable items that will aid in helping stock the Pantry shelves:
• North Station
• South Station
• Transfer Station
• Rehoboth Vision Care
Hours are from 10AM - 1PM. We hope to have a great turnout as the Pantry is always grateful in helping with providing food for our neighbors that may be experiencing food insecurity.

**Next, as of the time of printing, there may still be a few days to nominate a resident for this year's Russell Latham Citizen Recognition Night. Information is available at the end of this article. (nominations should be received by April 12th)

**There are still a few clam boils left for the season.....the first Wednesday of April, May, and June. We typically sell out fast, so make sure you reach out to a fellow Lion (or visit the website) if you are interested in enjoying a great night!

**The 52nd Annual Chet Munroe Lions Chicken Barbeque will be held on June 2nd. More information to come, but please save the date for this great event!
