Santa visits with local children

Chester Lions Club Lunch with Santa 2016 was a success! Earlier this month, children from the community enjoyed an afternoon full of merriment and magic at the Chester Lions Club’s annual Lunch with Santa. Over seventy-five children and their families attended this year’s free event at the Community Presbyterian Church on Main St. in Chester. The children were treated to a hot dog lunch, complete with chips, cookies, and drinks. After that, those in attendance were entertained by a magician with his entertaining holiday magic show. The magic show was followed by the main attraction and pictures with Santa and his elves, taken and distributed by the Chester Lions. Everyone had a wonderful time.

The Chester Lions would like to extend a special thank you to everyone who brought donations for the Chester Food Pantry and Operation Jersey Cares. Because of their generosity we were able to provide numerous bags and boxes full of food to support those in need.

The Chester Lions Club continues to support local, national and international efforts to help those in need.
