MAN, W.Va. — The Man Lions Club had a very active month with community Christmas activities.
Festivities began with the club’s annual Christmas dinner, which was attended by more than 40 members and guests.
The celebration continued with the 2nd Annual Lee Noel Memorial Christmas Caroling which included soups and goodies at the Man Church of God following the caroling.
After months of preparing, which included a Pancake Breakfast with the Minions and Santa sponsored by Wendy’s of Man, shopping, wrapping packages, their most successful community project of the year, the Spark of Love toy distribution, was all set to go. The Buffalo Creek Memorial Library served as the wrapping station and donation drop off site. Ralph R. Willis Vocational Center allowed them to use of their Polar Express train, which added a special touch to the toy delivery, and Logan County Station 200 Fire Station provided the transportation for Santa and his helpers. On Saturday, December 19, 2015, toys were distributed all over the Triadelphia area. This included the Town of Man Fire Dept., the Buffalo Creek Fire Dept., Station 200 Fire Dept. and the Man Lions Club.
The Man Lions Club would like to say “thank you” to the community for the support and donations making the Spark of Love toy distribution possible. Donations were also received from Concord College alumni.
The club meets on the first and third Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Buffalo Creek Memorial Library. Anyone interested in becoming a part of the growing organization may call the library at 304-583-7887 for more information or stop by and pick up an application.
