Waconia Lions donate $1,000 to food shelf

The Waconia Lions decided that a great way to help celebrate the season would be to give back to their community. The word went out to the entire Waconia Lions membership that the club would match any individual donations made at their annual Christmas Party and present a donation to the Waconia United Food Shelf.
The response from members was immediate and swift — even those Lions members who could not attend stepped up to make donations prior to the Christmas party.
The Lions members in attendance at the Christmas party continued to add to the donation and in the end, individual donations and Waconia Lions Club matching funds totaled $1,000.
