Through the generosity of many people and the energized Leos, the Food Drive brought in an overwhelming amount of donations that included non-perishable food and personal care items, children’s books, cash and checks. Over 30 bags and boxes of items were donated along with and cash and checks totaled over $1,600. Our members have decided to keep this an on-going project, by collected food at meetings other Leos and Lions events and to hold annual Food Drives.
Our Leo Club is community-based and although small in numbers, WE SERVE in many ways.

We have come a long way since we were Chartered in the Spring of 2009. As we have matured we have learned the value of volunteering and serving others.
We continue to bring in new members, so that as leaders, we can instill in them new values.
We continue to commit ourselves to serving our Community and we look forward to continued growth.
