Helping hand lent

 

As a Lions Club, we are often asked for assistance in helping those less fortunate and willingly contribute in what ever way we can. 

Recently we were asked to help a family that needed some assistance coping with a personal tragedy. 

Often we have to seek expertise outside of our club as was the case in this instance. A family faced with a terminal illness and trying to cope with that was also preparing to return east to be closer to family and friends. As time was of the essence, they needed some help finishing the basement in preparation for sale. 

We would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge Mr. Herb Haldane for the generous donation of his time and talents in helping us serve the needs of this family. His help was invaluable and very much appreciated.
