Lions step up for Christmas Bureau

Langley club presented charity with a cheque for $9,000. Proceeds earned during 2012 Christmas Kettle campaign

Members of the Langley Lions Club stopped by the Langley Christmas Bureau to present a cheque for $9,000 — the proceeds from their 2012 Christmas Kettle campaign. The Lions club will be out in force again this year at two locations, Buy Low Foods in Brookswood and the Save-On Foods store on 64 Avenue in Willoughby.

Kettle Campaign co-ordinator Rhonda Buchanan shares the role with Barb Forcier. “We have club members and volunteers manning the two locations on Friday nights, Saturdays and Sundays up to Dec. 22.  “We also have some of our ‘kids in training’ help out  and they give out packages of reindeer dust to sprinkle on the lawn to help Santa find his way,” said Buchanan.
