Lions are groups of service-minded people who are interested in doing volunteer work to improve their communities. We are young people, families, and Baby Boomers alike. To become a Lion is to become an active volunteer, a member of a respected international organization, a leader in your community and a friend to people in need.
Pride Lions is collecting donations for Hudson Valley Community Services from now until January 31st, 2018 and we need your help! We would greatly appreciate and accept donations for this great cause. Donations can be dropped off at The LOFT in the main hallway.

Our Friends at Memorial United Methodist Church announce their Coming Home program.
The Coming Home Re-entry Program is a 20 week program that seeks to empower those who are returning to the community from incarceration. It aims to support participants by decreasing symptoms of trauma while increasing their ability to cope and gain a sense of social support. Each session begins with a group meal, followed by a session on life skills, the sharing of personal stories in the context of a supportive group process, or one-on-one mentoring. Each program group is limited to approximately 12 participants.
Want to learn a new skill? …Meet new people? …Make something for yourself or others? …Get creative?
