HUNTINGTON BEACH.... November is the month to give thanks for our many blessings while we eat a delicious turkey dinner.  It is also the month we give thanks and honoring veterans and military personnel.  In an effort to give thanks to our military personnel, the HBH Lions is joining other clubs of District 4L4 in a project sponsor by the Chino Valley Lions for the upcoming holidays.  Military personnel stationed at Camp Pendleton Marine Base who are not able to go home to their families for the holidays will be getting Lion tote bags filled with essentials and snacks. 

Lion members are asked to contribute items such as gift cards, bar soap, toiletries, socks, snacks, cards, board games and twin sheets to fill these bags for the men and women who are serving their country.  To miss joining their loved ones for the holidays, some for the first time in their young lives, can be a very lonely and a sad occasion.  We hope that these gift bags will help to cheer them up and let them know we appreciate their sacrifices for our country.

Items will be collected at our meetings in November and we will be signing Holiday greeting cards for each bag at the last general meeting, November 21.  We are filling 20 bags.   They are to be delivered to the Chino Valley Lions Club by December 1.
