The first event to be held by the Maspeth Lions Club this year will be the Marlin Art Auction on Saturday, March 7, at St. Stanislaus Parish Hall. Held in conjunction with St. Stanislaus Parish, the auction promises to be a night of fun for all, with a recession-friendly $8 per person admission, which includes unlimited wine, cheese, coffee, and cake.

The art is brought in by Marlin Art, an organization that conducts over 500 live auctions each year, raising millions of dollars for various worthy causes around the country. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for a preview of the art, and the auction itself will begin at 7:30 p.m. For more information, please contact Lion President Joe Abramaitis at (917) 952-2156 or the St. Stanislaus Rectory at (718) 326-2185.

The Maspeth Lions Club has also been busy making many donations to various organizations. The club's most recent donation was a $500 donation to Vacation Camp for the Blind. The Lions became aware of the organization through Khalid Musa, a vision-impaired Lion member who has been instrumental in helping the club connect with various organizations that provide services for the blind.

The next Lions meeting will take place on Thursday, February 26, at 7 p.m. at O’Neill’s Restaurant, located at 64-21 53rd Drive in Maspeth. Feel free to stop in – the club is always looking for new members.
