Hanover Lions Club members have been busy putting up flags along County Rd. 19 and down River Road in Hanover … a long standing tradition of the club.

This is one of the four times a year that the flags go up.

The club has been supporting the community of Hanover and its citizens for the past 38 years.  The club annually donates money to the Hanove Food Shelf, the Hanover Fire Department and various organizations and individuals in need.

In May, the Hanover Lions organized and worked the City Clean-Up Day.  Items were separated so that everything that could be recycled was recycled.  There were two dumpsters full of electronics, appliances and metal items that were recycled.  Tires and fluorescent light tubes were also recycled versus going to the landfill.  Miller Trucking generously donated the use of one of their operators and a loader to push down the dumpsters.

The Hanover Lions meet on the second Thursday of every month at 7 p.m. at the Hanover City Hall.  Anyone is welcome to come to the meetings.  There are several events each year that provide volunteer opportunities.  You don’t have to be a member to volunteer.  For more information call Dean Eckard, the current President, at 7498-7702.
