Councilman addresses Lions

NEW CUMBERLAND – City Ward 2 Councilman Shawn Marks spoke to the New Cumberland Lions Club about upgrades to the city sidewalks and to state Route 2, in order to handle increased truck traffic.

At the south end of the city, there are concerns about road stability, and Marks suggested residents concerned about the roads contact their state senators and representatives. The secretary’s and treasurer’s reports were accepted as read. Lion Bob Manypenny reported on the paper drive, and there were 10 vehicles and 17 Lions participating.

Lion Anna Raines passed out dictionaries to New Manchester Elementary third-graders.

Manypenny reported Lion Sherrie Alford is working on a date for the penny auction. Lion Barbara Blackwell said funds are needed for the annual Halloween party, and members are encouraged to seek donations. Lion Russ Flanigan reported the tentative date for the flag program is Friday on Lion John Edwards behalf.

Lion Dorothy Hawkes thanked those who donated time and cookies for the Hall of Fame.

Flanigan made a motion, seconded by Lion Arland Lamp, to adjourn.
