The Uxbridge Lions Club continues serving the community through its efforts to help people securely dispose of documents and hard drives and recycle those materials, while raising funds to aid those in need. The Shred It Event will be held on Saturday, October 8, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, at the VFW parking lot on Route 16 W in Uxbridge. The service will be provided for $5.00 per copy paper sized box or per hard drive. The new goal is 15 tons, having reached 12 in May!
Once again the Lions will employ the services of P Pelligrino Trucking for securely shredding and recycling paper and Aurjent for computer hard drives destruction. Folks can observe the paper shredding and hard drive destruction process to feel confident the work has been done on site. Aurjent is even willing to make arrangements to go to a business location to perform electronics and hard drive destruction.
The Uxbridge Lions Club celebrates the First Anniversary of its charter in 2015. It has been an active club since 2009. The Lions Club meets the third Wednesday of each month at the Uxbridge Senior Center on South Main Street at 7 p.m. Members of the community are invited to attend and meet the members and check out its projects and programs.
The motto “We Serve” is appropriate in the club’s upcoming plans to bring technology to vision screening in our public schools, sponsor a LEOs club for high school students and Peace Poster contest for middle school students, raise funds at Grafton’s Haunted Hayride, and participate in Uxbridge’s First Night Holiday Parade in December.
