West Hagerstown Lions Club

The West Hagerstown Lions Club began the year by feeding the homeless at the REACH cold weather shelter Jan. 16. A variety of food was enjoyed by all. 

The club had another successful ham sandwich sale and wants to say thank you to those who showed their support.

On Wednesday, Feb. 15, members will spend an evening playing bingo with the residents of Walnut Towers. Winners will receive prizes and refreshments will be served.

Don’t forget to donate used eyeglasses and hearing aids to the Lions Club.

Umpire training clinic

On Tuesday, Feb. 7, Maryland District 1 Little League will conduct a rules and umpire training clinic. It will be held every Tuesday in February from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Church of God on Leitersburg Pike.

If you are a baseball/softball manger, coach, umpire or interested parent, it is recommended that you attend these sessions. There are several significant rule changes this year. This is free for little league volunteers.
