The Whitefish Lions Club harvested their last bit of produce from our organic garden this week. We pulled up hundreds of pounds of yellow and purple potatoes as well as squash, zucchini and even some remaining tomatoes. This garden was a huge success, providing hundreds of pounds of fresh, organic produce to our local food banks and land to hand programs. The final step will be tilling the land and preparing the site for winter. We are already getting ideas for next years garden and look forward to sharing it with the community.

GLENDIVE LIONS LAUNCH LOCAL GRANT PROGRAM
The Glendive Lions Club is excited to announce the continuation of its grant for the Glendive Community. Years ago, the Lions established a foundation and every year they invested a small portion of their fundraising money and personal donations into the foundation. The foundation has grown to the point where the Lions are now able to use some of the dividends to fund local needs and projects.
The Lions are inviting applications for the funding from community “not for profit” and 501(c)(3) organizations whose needs fit within one of three categories: 1) Community Health; 2) Local Needs, and 3) Local Youth Programs.
Approximately $6,600 is available for grants this year according to Lion President Jason Stuart. Stuart added, “the Glendive Community has supported the Lions Club in our fundraising efforts over the years and we are excited to return that support in the form of these grants.”
Under the guidance of Lion Member and Investment Advisor Representative, Melonie Beeler of Cetera Wealth Partners, the Foundation has consistently grown year after year. “For 19 years the Glendive Lions Club members have been actively involved in the analysis of their investment portfolio making regular contributions based on long term strategy. Their fiduciary dedication to build the endowment for the benefit of our community has been collaborative heroism,” Beeler said in response to her involvement with the Lions Club Foundation.
Applications can be picked up at the Glendive Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture at 808 N. Merrill Ave., or from Cetera in the C&J Building, 135 Highway 16, Building C, Glendive. Completed grant applications should be mailed to PO Box 366, Glendive, MT 59330. Grant applications must be postmarked no later than December 1, 2023. Anyone with grant questions can contact Jerry Frank at 406-989-1037.
