Editor’s Note: The following was submitted by the Sherborn Lions Club.

The Sherborn Leo Club is a brand-new civic organization that was formed with the support and guidance of the Sherborn Lions Club. The Sherborn Leo Club is headed up by President Amanda Dye and other officers such as Oliver Morgens, Kaitlyn Anderson, Hayden Anderson and six other members from Dover and Sherborn.

The main goal of the Sherborn Leo Club is to work on community service projects, such as the ongoing project at the Sherborn Transfer Station.

“It’s not necessarily a glamorous job, but it’s important in that it’s the Lions Club’s main fundraiser and brings in about $6,000 a year,” said Dye. “For many years the Lions Club members have toiled at the transfer station, sorting organizing and delivering recyclable cans and bottles for reimbursement. Not only are they doing a great service for the town, but they are also helping the environment and the recycling movement, two issues that are important to me and the rest of the Leo Club members and many in our generation.”

The Leo Club is open to new members and if you’re interested, please reach out to dye.amanda@doversherborn.org.

The other project that the Leo Club is taking over this year, spearheaded by Oliver Morgens, is “Art in a Bag,” which is a project created by Amanda Dye in ninth grade during her training at the MIT Leadership Program. Over the past four years, she has worked along with a small team to collect, purchase, sort and deliver over 450 “art in a bag” donations customized to each age group 3-18, to A Place to Turn Food Pantry in Natick, which services more than 30 towns.

“Seeing the joy that art can bring to so many kids reinforces that this is an important and worthwhile cause,” said Dye. “If anyone from the community would like to donate towards the ‘Art in a Bag’ project, please reach out to me. We are always looking for new crayons, markers, paints, bubbles, chalk and coloring books.”

“The Sherborn Lions Club is thrilled to see the growth of our club and the formation of the Leo Club,” said Jack Mulhall, president. “We welcome their help at the transfer station and are looking forward to seeing all the great things they can do in our community to help others. The Lions Club is also looking for new members, so if you’re 18+, please reach out to our membership chair, Kathy Horigan, at kathyhorigan@icloud.com.”
