After the hectic Christmas period we take the chance to catch our breath, look back at the festive season and enjoy a social event or two. The Christmas parcels project delivered a near record 200 parcels to people living alone, couples and families for whom Christmas might otherwise have been no different to any other day. The value of the project is borne out by the many letters and cards we receive from grateful recipients, often saying that the fact someone has thought of them is just as important as the welcome groceries. The Club’s Christmas dinner saw an enjoyable meal followed by a few tales and anecdotes, rounded off by our now traditional carol singing.
The social calendar includes a theatre visit in January and an evening speaker in February, before the (hopefully) warmer weather tempts us outdoors again.
2017 will see the 100th anniversary of the Lions’ movement and the 35th anniversary of the Lions’ Club of Woodbridge & District. There will be events to mark both occasions; a lasting legacy of the centenary will be new play equipment in Elmhurst Park.
