On Jan. 14, the Freedom District Lions Club members attended the second annual "Barn Social" meeting, hosted by member Roger Wolfe at Pine Valley Tree Farm on Fannie Dorsey Road.

At the meeting the average age of the club plummeted as two new, young members were inducted.

Stephanie Sullivan is the fiancé of Lion Patrick Livesay. She attends Villa Julie college in its nursing program.

The other inductee was Matthew Livesay -- who after the induction ceremony started off on another new adventure and is now at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Paris Island, S.C., on his way to becoming a U.S. Marine.

Matthew said he wanted to follow his father, mother and brother -- all Lions members -- before he left for his Marine training. The Freedom District Lions wished him the best on his service.

The induction ceremony was conducted by Past District Gov. John Hopkins of the Silver Run/Union Mills Lions Club.

At the same meeting the Freedom District Lions welcomed into membership Russ Coldren, who transferred from the Westminster Club.

In other recent Freedom Lions activities:

On Dec. 23, members Ellen Dix and Karen Larrimore co-hosted a Christmas Party for residents and families of Oakland Manor Assisted Living Facility. Larrimore's husband, Bob, was Santa's Helper for the event. Each resident received a Christmas stocking and had their picture taken with Santa. This event and has been a service project of the Freedom Lions for four years.

On Dec. 5 at the South Carroll Senior Center, Lions Karen Larrimore, Sue Miller, Bob Miller, Viki Peltier and Ellen Dix filled 100 Christmas stockings for distribution to the Sykesville Girls Shelter, Oakland Manor Assisted Living, Carroll County Long Term Care and the Family Shelter.

The Freedom District Lions are looking for men and women who would like help their community. For membership information, call Ron Audlin on 410-795-3675 or go to www.freedomdistrictlions.com.
