The Lewiston Lions Club is ending the year on a high note. Four new members - Fred Smith, Bob Hartz, Carol Sommer and Lisa Ieraci, pictured from left - were inducted during December's dinner meeting.
Lisa Ieraci 's husband, James, was inducted in November. All together, the Lions membership has grown to 34.
The club voted to donate $500 to Hurricane Sandy relief. In addition, Lions District 20N donated $50,000, while Lions International sent $100,000. An additional $100,000 in special grants was given to each state involved.
A portion of the Lions Club member dues supports international and district organizations.
