Guardian Bears Program
Monticello Lions donated dozens of teddy bears to the Guardian Bear Project of the Spinning Bobbin 4-H Club. The 4-H members sewed camo vests for the bears.
Each vest had a secret pocket for a special note from the service member to their child or sibling, who then received the bear from the service member at the deployment ceremony.
Lions also donated a number of teddy bears as prizes at the annual picnic for special needs persons hosted by Monticello and other Lions Clubs at Weldon Springs State Park.
