On Thursday, June 7, the Maspeth Lions Club inducted three new members. Angela Mann, Vinny Allocca and John Considine were all sworn in by Maspeth Lions member and Zone Chairman Joseph Abramaitis.

Mann is a hairstylist and proprietor of Grand Salon & Spa on Grand Avenue in Maspeth. Allocca and Considine are both retired residents of Middle Village.

Recently, the Lions Club presented scholarships to several students from local elementary schools who exhibited excellence in community service. The recipients were Robert Feliciano, Sarah Gallagher, Marie Ivers, Logan Powers and Amy Vesey of St. Stanislaus School; Alejandro Montoya, Lauren Nina Peralta and Donagh Gallagher of St. Adalbert’s School; and Niamh Girdusky and Daniel Marchese of Our Lady of Hope School.

On August 5, the Lions will be attending Visions Lions Family Day in Rockland County, an event of the Visions VCB organization. The Maspeth Lions donate to Visions, through Maspeth Lion member and a Visions Leader Khalid Musa, which provides an array of services to the blind and visually impaired, such as summer camps and learning services through the Visions Center for Blindness.

The Lions have also pledged a monetary donation to Relay for Life at Juniper Park in Middle Village on June 23 and 24. Relay for Life is a walk that goes on through the night to bring awareness and raise money for cancer research.

As always, the Lions are encouraging and welcoming new members. Anyone who is interested in joining the club could can Joseph Papavero at (718)651-3535, or feel free to stop into a meeting on the 2nd or 4th Thursdays of each month at Connolly’s Corner on Grand Avenue at 7:30 p.m. Meetings are subject to change, so please verify before coming.
