Ridding the world of unnecessary documents securely and recycling that paper efficiently is the goal of the semi-annual Shred Event sponsored by the Uxbridge Lions Club. This spring it will be held on Saturday, May 4 from 9 a.m. to noon at the VFW parking lot on Route 16 in Uxbridge. Pellegrino Trucking will be on hand to shred on site and On Site Computers will certify hard drive destruction and dispose of small electronic devices. These services will be performed for $5 per copy paper sized box of paper items and for hard drive destruction and small electronic devices as well.
Other spring activities include scholarship awards to Uxbridge High School seniors and donation to UHS drama program, contributions to local students for summer camp at Clara Barton Camp for children with diabetes and partnerships for community members needing assistance for hearing aids or with vision concerns. Further, the Lions support the Uxbridge Baseball Association, the Uxbridge Elderly Connection and Senior Center and Beautify Uxbridge. Funds raised this year also enabled the Uxbridge Lions to contribute to other Lions charities as well. Plans are underway for a fall auto show and major fundraising art auction next spring.
The Uxbridge Lions meet every third Wednesday of the month at 7 PM at the Uxbridge Senior Center. New members and visitors are always welcome to come and learn about what the Lions do as the largest service organization in the world. Its motto is “We Serve.”
