McCann Students Refurbish Lions Club Trailer

Community SubmissionPrint Story | Email Story
ADAMS, Mass. — The Adams Lions Club trailer, which is used around town during events throughout the year, was in dire need of repairs.

Thanks to the faculty, staff and students in the carpentry, electrical and sheet metal departments of McCann Technical School in North Adams, those repairs were completed this month in time for the Adams summer events. The Adams Lions Club is most appreciative and thankful to everyone who participated in this project.

Revenues from refreshments sold from the trailer are used to sponsor such events and activities as college scholarships to graduating seniors at McCann and Hoosac Valley High School; the Honor Society Banquet; the Senior Center Luncheon; and support for youth organizations, nonprofit organizations and athletic teams. The Lions Club also sponsors a program that provides assistance for the purchase of eyeglasses, hearing aids and health-related services.

The club contributes to Massachusetts Eye Research, Journey for Sight, and the District Y33 EyeMobile. This specially equipped mobile unit travels to communities throughout Western Massachusetts, District 33-Y. The Lions and volunteers provide free health screenings for vision, glaucoma, hearing, diabetes and blood pressure.
