In November 2022, Santa deputized special elves to collect goodies to fill Christmas stockings for residents at the Autumn Lake Healthcare at Glade Valley. The elves delivered all the goodies at the Thurmont Lions Club meeting on November 9. This was the club’s service project for December, with members assembling the stockings for delivery to the facility.

On December 23, 2022, PDG Paul Cannada and Lion Joyce Anthony delivered the 118 stockings and 118 Christmas cards to the Autumn Lake Healthcare at Glade Valley. Activities Director Nick Goodrich was so appreciative of the items. This was a heartfelt service project for the club, and it was fun to spread a little Christmas cheer to folks who have had a really tough year and could not be with their families during the holiday season.

Lion Joyce Anthony received a thank you letter for the club’s thoughtfulness, generosity, and adding joy to the residents.
