Lakes Lions give the gift of reading

Genin and Hendrickx are pictured with first grade students from St. Henry’s Area School in Perham.

As part of this year’s, “In A World of Service” theme, Lions International President Wayne Madden is challenging Lions club members to participate in the Reading Action Program, to focus on increasing literacy. There are nearly 800 million people around the world today who cannot read.

Perham Lakes Lions members Bonnie Genin and Pat Hendrickx have been going to local elementary schools to read to students, and their club has donated money to each of the schools to be used for the purchase of books.
