Leo Club thanks community

The Cooperstown Leo Club would like to thank all who attended last Friday’s concert, ``Dentist Unplugged.’’ It was a great success and one of the few fundraising events for the club.

Our gratitude goes out to Dr. Paul Weber, one of the Leo advisors, for holding this annual concert on our behalf. We also extend out thanks to the Cooperstown Concert Series for giving us the concession for their concert, ``Crooked Still,’’ held the following evening, and to the community who are supporting our charitable efforts.

This has been a busy season of service for the Leo Club. We held a food drive for the Cooperstown Food Bank and will be holding one for the Hartwick Food Pantry in February. Each Saturday, members are at the Farmers’ Market to help the elderly or infirm who need assistance carrying bags to their cars.

Recently we helped set up for the annual Christmas Concert at Christ Church, unloaded Christmas trees for the Lions Club sale, and have done service projects for the Friends of the Library, the Angel Network, the Chamber of Commerce and other community charitable agencies.

Last fall, twenty Leos set out around the village raking lawns for those who might have had a hard time on their own. The money we raise supports donations to local and international charities, and helps fund educational experiences for Leos. We invite you all to attend the Lions Club Pancake Breakfasts on Winter Carnival Weekend, Feb. 6 and 7, where the Leos combine service and fundraising. As an active and able service club, we take pride in being available to help local non-profit organizations.

If you or your organization could use our help, please contact advisor David Pearlman, at 547-4186 or Cooperstown Leo Club

  • Please Click Here I have always gone to the library. When I was young, my mother took my siblings and me to our local library at least once a week to select books. I felt I had the world at my fingertips, so many books to explore!

  • Our Readers' Opinions After living in the western southern tier for 10 years, my wife and I decided to visit the Hall of Fame today, June 20, before moving out of the area in a few weeks. We enjoyed the museum, but parking in Cooperstown proved to be a formidable gauntlet.
