The Bristol Area Lions Club with family and friends distributed 55 Christmas food baskets to Bristol and South Bristol homes on Saturday, Dec. 16, thanks to the efforts of Bristol Lion’s project manager Michael Hope and Paul Yates of C.E. Reilly & Son Inc. in New Harbor. Owner Reggie Reilly was one of the founding members of the Bristol Area Lions Club in 1958.  

The Lions thank Rising Tide Community Market in Damariscotta 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. 

The next meeting of the Bristol Area Lions Club will be at Deb’s Bristol Diner, 1267 Bristol Road, Bristol Mills. To make reservations for that meeting, please call Herb Watson at 677-6191.
