John Staton, president of the Knowlton Lions Club, thanks donors for their generous support of the Lions Club financial campaign. While the final results are not in, he is confident the campaign will meet its objective.
The money supports local groups whose volunteer efforts contribute to the quality of life in Town of Brome Lake and West Bolton. The funds are donated to projects in the schools, Pettes Memorial Library, Brome County Historical Society (Musée Lac-Brome Museum), BMP Hospital, and First Responders, as well as to many other groups. The Club also responds to emergencies.
During the pandemic, the Lions Club continues to address the needs of the community, sometimes in different formats. The club hopes to find a new way to offer its June garage sale, the Remembrance Day Brunch and the Santa Claus parade.
