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

Holliston Lions: Identifying Risk Factors for Blindness

Since Helen Keller laid down her challenge for Lions to become Knights of the Blind, we have done just that. Through education, financially supporting research efforts and through our well-known Eyemobile, Lions across Massachusetts have taken steps to identify those at the highest risk of blindness.

Holliston Lions - Service With a Mission

The Holliston Lions Club performs many service projects and fundraising events. Annual events like our $10,000 raffle go to support many important programs not only in Holliston but across Massachusetts and internationally. On a state-wide basis, the majority of our “out-of-Holliston” donations go to support Massachusetts Lions Eye Research Fund, Inc. This is no accident, in fact, it is part of our overall mission which was a result of a challenge issued by Massachusetts native Helen Keller.

In Celebration of Women's History Month: History of Women in Lions Clubs

Amy Porter, Pam Zicko, Linda Ahronian, Louise Kirkpatrick and Lisa Zais. Residents of Holliston will recognize these women’s names because they have all been recognized as Citizen of the Year for Holliston. But there’s something you may not know. These women also are part of the world’s largest service organization, Lions Clubs International (LCI). The Holliston Lions Club became part of LCI in 1941. At that time, women were not allowed to be part of Lions, despite the fact Lions obtained their mission — eradicating blindness — from a woman, specifically, Helen Keller. It is also worth noting that the “Lions Toast,” which is unique to Massachusetts and reads simply “Not above you, not beneath you but with you” was written by the wife of a Lions Club member in Lynn, Massachusetts.
