The DCTC Lions Club put down a laminate wood floor and painted the interior walls of several town homes in Woodbury during MEA break. These homes were made for those less fortunate, and the Lions were there to help. From left to right: Edward Garza.

You can drop off your donations in the Student Life Center or the Administration office on campus. The hearing aids and eye glasses will be donated to people who need them! Help DCTC help the communities in need!
The DCTC Lions Club participated once again this year in the annual Out of the Darkness walk to highlight suicide awareness and mental health challenges. This is the third year the Lions have shown their support for this cause. Turnout was huge: The Lions joined roughly 500 others to show their support. The event was held at Como Lake in St. Paul on September 14, 2014.
The next event the Lions will be participating in is Habitat for Humanity, scheduled for Friday, Oct. 17. This is MEA weekend, so students will not have to miss any classes. The event runs from 7:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided. No skills are necessary – just a willingness to help build a home in Woodbury. Please contact either Brett Kolles firstname.lastname@example.org or Pat Lair email@example.com if you are interested in helping. There is a limit of ten volunteers.
Congratulations to the newly elected Lions Club board of directors! This semester will prove to be once again a fun, purposeful, and memorable experience for the club.
