Boardman Lions Club gave seeds to fourth-grade students at Robinwood Lane Elementary School April 26 to celebrate Earth Day. This is the second year that the Lions club has donated the seeds to fourth-grade students throughout the Boardman school system.

“This idea came because last year, the National Lions club participated in an event called Fourth-grade Foresters, in which the Lions club gave seeds to fourth-grade students in their areas,” said Patti Shears, a member of the Boardman Lions Club. “The Boardman Lions Club enjoyed doing it so much last year that we thought it would be a nice thing to do this year around Earth Day.”

“We really thought this was something every person could treasure in their lives. We thought it was something that would replenish them,” said Ron Paris, another member of the Boardman Lions Club. “This is something that, as the students become adults, they can look back on. It also gives them a taste of what service clubs, like the Lions club, does to give back in the community.”

Other activities the Lions club participates in throughout the year includes giving recycled eyeglasses to the needy, giving free new coats to children who need them in the fall, eye screenings at the Canfield Fair, landscaping all the “Welcome to Boardman” signs, and more.

The Boardman Lions club is always seeking new members. For membership information, contact Terry Shears at 330-726-1943.
