News from McKean Lioness Club...
The McKean Lioness Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping our community.
Officers for 2019-2020 are: President - Carol Mosier, Vice President - Mary Villa, Treasurer - Liz Herman, Secretary - Linda Smith, Recording Secretary - Barb Davies, and Tail Twister - Lisa Pilliteri.
Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. for dinner and meeting at the St. Francis Usher's Club. New members are always welcome.
Some of our donations go the McKean Hose Company, Leader Dogs, Vets Hospital, and Soldier's and Sailor's Activity funds, Lions Eye Bank, St Francis Food Bank, and PA Lions Beacon Lodge, McKean area schools, Girl Scouts, and the McKean Elementary Nature Fitness Trail. In addition, we gave two scholarships to GMHS seniors. In order to do all of this, we hold fundraisers during the year to raise the necessary monies. Last year we had a wreath with gift cards attached which we raffled at our Christmas party. Twice a year we have a bake sale at the Lion's Club Pancake Breakfast. The next bake sale will be held on March 1, 2020.
Each spring we have a Card Party at St. Francis Parish Center. This year it will be held on April 19 from 2-4 p.m. and it includes a tasty luncheon, door prizes, and a Chinese auction. The Card Party is our biggest fundraiser so we hope that you are able to come out and support us.
We enjoy helping other organizations and our community. Last year, we organized a Christmas party for children complete with games, lunch, clowns, gifts, and a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus. We also organized our Annual Pie Contest and Auction held during McKean Community Day with half the money going back into the community.
We would like to thank everyone in the community for the generous support that they have given us over the years. Your help today makes a better tomorrow.
Linda Smith, Secretary
