Rainier Lions Club Gives Community Service Awards to 15 Students.

There was a full house at the last Rainier Lions Club meeting Monday evening! The Rainier Lions hosted a pizza and cake party to thank some of the youth in our community for their community service work.  Over the last year these students showed up to clean parks and trails in Rainier. They also always showed up to help the Lions whenever we needed assistance this last year in any project we called them for.  They helped cart heavy boxes of fruit to customer's cars.  They helped with Family Fun Day, packed apples & helped with Halloween in the Park.  So many of these students sang Christmas Carols when they went "Caroling for Cans" that the Rainier Emergency Food Center received over 2000 pounds of non-perishable food in donations.
Club president Evan Burnett said “ it’s important to recognize these students and the service they perform  for the community” They could have said no, but never did. Rainier should be proud to have such citizens in our community who want to give their time to make our community a better place to live. Some are scouts.  All of these students have parents that care.
