The meeting started with Matt Collins from the Livonia Lions Club giving a recap of a project that they had just finished which was Build a Bed. This annual project was completed last week resulting in several beds being made of wood/ plywood for children to use.
He also discussed the meal packing project, Kids Coalition Against Hunger, on October 21st, at St. Edith's. Currently, the Lions are short on supply money for their goal of packing 50 thousand meals. He has faith that the outstanding pledges will come in to fulfill the need.
The next part of our meeting was our "Meet the Candidates" series presented by the club to keep our members informed on the candidates running for office in Livonia.
The Club heard from Carrie Budzinski and Robb Drzewicki who are both running for City Council for Livonia. The Council positions are non-political. They both gave a brief overview of their background and why they wanted to run for office.
