With snowflakes falling and single digit temperatures the Bristol Area Lions Club and friends distributed 54 Christmas food baskets to Bristol and South Bristol homes on Saturday, Dec. 17.

Thanks to the efforts of Bristol Lion project manager Michael Hope; and Paul Yates of C. E. Reilly & Son Inc. in New Harbor.

The Lions thank Rising Tide Community Market for its donation of canned green beans and containers of gravy. After scholarships this is the club’s largest donation to the community. The Bristol Area Lions look forward every year to this heartfelt event and wished everyone a Merry Christmas. Eleven club members participated the event: Alfred Ajami, Bill Byrnes, Bill Crider, Brendan Donegan, Michael Hope, John Janell, Walt Johansson, David Kolodin, Chris Leeman, Tom Rodrigues, and Jock Winchester. The were assisted by five family members and friends: Jay Bryant, Julie Crider, Stan Galvin, Craig Leeman and Tim Leeman.

The next meeting of the Bristol Area Lions will be at 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 6, 2017, at Hawks House Inn, 349 State Road 129, Walpole. To make reservations for that meeting, call John Janell at 563-7402.
