The BKM Food Pantry is in need of a new place to store and box our food supply before we distribute it to the community.
The Club owes Lion Bob and his better half, Fran, a huge thank you for the many years that we used their home. We were always welcomed with open arms, coffee, and cookies. Thank you Lion Bob and Fran!
