Since 1961 the Cumberland / North Yarmouth Lions Club has served the two communities by sponsoring Greely scholarships, sponsoring Greely delegates to Boys and Girls State, supporting the local Food Pantry, supporting and sponsoring local scout troops, making durable medical equipment available to those in need, delivering poinsettias to elderly community members during the holidays, spearheading the annual Christmas Tree lighting and Santa visit event in Cumberland Center, and providing eyeglass service. In 1987 the club organized a scholarship fund aimed at granting scholarships to Greely High School seniors and graduates who are continuing their education. Local Lions fundraisers generate all of the club’s income. These include the Lion’s food booth at the Cumberland Fair, an annual citrus sale, a Cabin Fever dinner in March, apple pie sales (whose proceeds go to the Food Pantry ), and a food booth at Twin Brook events. The Lions count on the people of Cumberland and North Yarmouth to support these fundraisers. For more information, or to get involved, please visit the local chapter’s webpage at www.cnylions.org.
