At the most recent meeting of the Bayside - Whitestone Lions Club were Zone Chair Frank Miller; Center For The Women of New York Founder Ann Jawin; president Paul Vallone; and third vice president Adam Lombardi.

A breath of fresh air is on its way to northeast Queens.

The Bayside – Whitestone Lions Club held its monthly meeting at the law office of Vallone & Vallone to discuss several community service opportunities, including the upcoming visit to the St. Albans Community Living Center to deliver the handmade knitted scarves, sweaters, and hats to the veterans.

The Lions also are planning an upcoming tree replanting and give-away of 100 trees to community residents on April 28. Last fall, the community suffered from the tornado that destroyed many beloved trees. In response, the Lions Club applied to the NYC Million Trees Program and was distinguished with the honor of being named as a host to distribute 100 eight-foot trees.

“It’s going to be another big project, but well worth the sweat and effort,” said Lions President Paul Vallone.

Many green-thumbed members were quick to volunteer a range of helpful contributions, including trucks to transport the trees, horticultural knowledge, and temporary storage while a large community-centered event is in the making to celebrate the achievement.

Ann Jawin, founder of the Center For The Women of New York, a non-profit women’s help and empowerment group, came to inform the members about her service organization, but ended up mentioning how impressed she was with all of the community members banding together to get the tree planting project off its feet.

“We work with any group that helps women because it’s all for the community,” said Jawin.

The Bayside – Whitestone Lions Club will meet Wednesday, March 7 at 7 p.m. at the law offices of Vallone & Vallone. Everyone is encouraged to attend. For more information, call 718-428-7285
