Bristol Area Lions distribute Christmas Food Baskets 12/22/2018

Posted by DS in activities.


The Bristol Area Lions Club, with family and friends distributed 50 Christmas food baskets to Bristol and South Bristol homes on Saturday, Dec. 22, thanks to the efforts of Bristol Lions Club 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.

Participating in the deliveries were eight Bristol Area Lions: Bill Byrnes, Bill Crider, Brendan Donegan, Michael Hope, John Janell, Walt Johansson, David Kolodin and Chris Leeman: and six friends: Stan Galvin, Craig Leeman, Norma Leeman, Tim Leeman, Ashley Mason and Coleen Nichols. 

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 Feb. 4, at 6 p.m. at Deb’s Bristol Diner, 1267 Bristol Road, Bristol Mills. Dinner will be chicken pot pie, salad, and rolls followed by coffee and brownies. The speaker will be Rev. Robert Ives. To make reservations for that meeting, call John Janell at 563-7402.
