Holliston Lions Kick Off the Holiday Season

by Doreen Martel
November 17, 2018

It’s that time of year again when the kids are preparing their lists, there is a definite chill in the air, and parents are despairing over the shopping season getting started! Before all of these things get the best of you, the Holliston Lions Club announces they are all set for their Annual Breakfast With Santa. The breakfast will be held on Sunday, December 2, 2018.

This year, as in years past, the event will take place at the Placentino/Miller Cafetorium. The event starts at 8am and will continue through 11:30 am. Breakfast will include pancakes and eggs, bacon and sausage, fruit, juice and milk, coffee, tea and hot cocoa! We also are determined to keep costs down so tickets are still only $7 for anyone over the age of 12, $5 for anyone ages 2 through 11, and free for those under 2. There is also a special rate for those attending with immediate family where you get full admission for a maximum of $20! You can purchase tickets at the door, or you can pre-purchase your tickets at Fiske’s or the Holliston Grill and save $1 if you do so by November 30!  You can purchase tickets online at the Holliston Lions Club website also!

The kids will LOVE the opportunity to participate in a free raffle sponsored by Fiske’s General Store, or have their photo taken with Santa. If you bring an unwrapped toy donation for Toys for Tots or non-perishable items for the Holliston Pantry Shelf, you’ll get a $1 discount off the photo.

Remember, 100 percent of the funds raised by the Holliston Lions Club is given back to local community groups and other charities. No administrative funds are raised from the public! This year, as in years’ past, the funds raised will be used to support Scholarships for high school seniors, Holliston Pantry Shelf, Holliston Music and Arts Parents Association and Massachusetts Lions Eye Research Fund, Inc. to name a few.

If you want more information about the breakfast, you can see the flyer on the Holliston Lions Club website, or you may contact this year’s Chairperson Debbie Kerrigan via email at mrdak@verizon.net or by phone at 508-429-8696. If you are interested in more information about what Lions do or if you are looking for volunteer opportunities, consider joining Lions and contact the Lions membership chair Steve Apesos at membership@hollistonlions.org

February 14: Organ Donor Awareness Day

Anyone who watched Channel 5 on Tuesday February 12th couldn't have missed the piece “The Race Against Time” on the Boston police officer who was on the organ donor list waiting for a lung transplant. Fortunately, he was one of the lucky ones. This year, like those in the past, Valentine’s Day is National Donor Day. There are hundreds of myths about organ donation and the Holliston Lions Club feels it’s important to dispel some of those myths. Lions have, for many years, supported efforts to educate the public about organ donation.
