Lions fundraiser for flood victims

To the editor:

Proceeds from the Lake Linden-Hubbell Lions Club’s annual Fourth of July Breakfast went directly to help local residents affected by the recent flood disasters. The club also generated additional donations from individuals, corporate sponsors and a separate fundraiser by other U.P. residents, all totaling $9,500.

This money was distributed to thirteen local families in the Lake Linden, Hubbell, Tamarack and Bootjack area that suffered losses during the flooding.

Thank you to all those who attended the breakfast, donated money and helped out in any way.

Lake Linden-Hubbell Lions Club is working toward raising additional funds in the hopes of helping others on the needs list.

We remain Copper Country strong!
