|I grew up in Longmeadow and have fond memories of Longmeadow Days and the Lions Club parade. How sorry I am to hear that the Longmeadow Lions Club has decided to disband. I would like to thank the members of this long-serving club not only for those warm memories, but for the good example they set and the good deeds they inspired.|
My father, Richard Holmes, loved the Lions Club and what it stood for. The sense of community and purpose he instilled in my sisters and I have provided a framework for the type of citizen we want aspire to be in our own communities...involved, interested, responsible.
