NEW CUMBERLAND - Shayni Vega gave a presentation on her summer trip to Italy during the New Cumberland Lions Club Sept. 25 meeting.

Vega's trip was sponsored by the New Cumberland Lions, and she stayed two weeks with a host family in which both parents were Lions Club members.

Vega also attended a Lions Camp for two and a half weeks at an Italian Lions Camp, during which she traveled to several sites with 44 other exchange students from around the world. She presented President Richard Blackwell with a flag from the youth camp and exchange and a flag from the Cirie, Italy, Lions Club.
