On Wednesday, June 6, the Waldoboro Lions Club held its regular business meeting at its location on Mill Street at 6:30 p.m. in the VFW Hall. Twelve Lions and several guests enjoyed a delicious turkey pot pie dinner catered by Moody’s Diner and its staff.
Following dinner, the Lions and their guests enjoyed a talk by Bill Ellsworth and his staff from the Lincoln County Midcoast Outreach program. The program works with drug and alcohol addicts who are looking for help and recovery.
Ellsworth talked about what the program does and introduced four people who help him in the program. Those others are Waldoboro Police Chief Bill Labombarde, Lincoln County Probation Officer Anthony Prest, counselor Angela Musto, and counselor Sue Murray. Each of these helping Ellsworth spoke briefly about their contributions to the program.
Following the outreach’s discussion, a short business meeting was conducted by King Lion Ellen Winchenbach, who introduced two visiting Lions guests, Zone Chairman Duane Lewis and April Danielson, from the Boothbay Lions Club.
The first order of business was the acceptance of both a secretary’s report and a treasurer’s report from Lions Carol Brown and Stan Paton.
Reports were given by the food pantry’s Lions committee, eye care chairman Bill Blodgett, the Waldoboro Day committee chairman, and the chairman of the scholarship committee.
Before closing, the Waldoboro Lions made a donation to the Lincoln County Outreach Program and were informed about coming Lions activities in the next month.
The Lions Club adjourned at 8:30 p.m.
