Staff Report

Each year the Lion Clubs in Delaware host a Christmas party in each county for the visually impaired. This year’s party for Kent County was December 1st, at the Camden Wyoming fire hall. The attending clubs are supplied names of visually impaired client who have indicated they would like to attend. Each club contacts the client in their area and makes arrangements for their transportation to the party. Approximately 100 visually impaired clients and family members attend the Kent county Christmas party.

After dinner there is entertainment, which includes clowns that make great things with balloons, face painting, music for dancing and Christmas carols. Then Santa arrives, after all the children have told Santa what they want for Christmas, they receive crayons and a coloring book. Santa also gives a personal gift to each visually impaired person. As the clients leave for home they receive a bag of mixed fruit and a box of candy. Everyone has a really great time and they always want to know if they can come to next year’s party.

There are ten clubs, Camden-Wyoming, Clayton, Capital City, Dover, Dover Lioness, Frederica Spring Creek, Harrington, Milford, Murderkill and Smyrna that take turns hosting the party. Each club contributes a fixed money amount and donates fruit or other item for the gift bags. Lions from each Club help work in the kitchen or at the buffet serving line, and make sure everyone has a good time. The Milford Leo’s always are a welcome addition. This year 15 Milford Leo’s attended and help serve dinner, hand out the gifts and see to it that the young people are having a good time.
