The East Haven Lions Club was recently honored with the Silver Centennial Award from Lions Clubs International. This award is given for promoting membership in the Lions Clubs and fostering its humanitarian ideals.

Recent contributions include $500 to the East Haven Academy for sheet music and other necessities for the music program, $350 to Ferrara School for students who need musical instruments, $300 to the food pantry for Thanksgiving pies, and $250 to the speech and hearing program towards a hearing aid for a local resident.
The East Haven Lions Club has open membership and meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Twin Pines Diner, 34 Main Street, East Haven. For more information, call Corrine at 203-467-4050.
