The Ormond-By-the-Sea Lions Club's annual regional food drive for students needing assistance with food during spring break ended successfully in February.

Thanks to donations from the community, the OBTS Lions Club was able to deliver 15 bags of groceries to Osceola Elementary, 40 to Westside Elementary and 15 to St. Brendan's Catholic Church food pantry.

Members are now looking forward to hosting a fish dinner on April 9. Also in April, the club is sponsoring a Lions Night at Jackie Robinson Ball Park. Call 441-4421
