Lions Club on San Pedro does good things

Formed in 1975, the San Pedro Lions Club has been serving the community of that municipality for over thirty years. The club was formed with the aim of providing health services and the development of community projects to assist schools and vulnerable groups likes the poor and elderly.  Over the past weekend, the Lions Club elected a new President, Merlene Spain.

“I’ve been involved in the Lion’s Club for the past ten years and I was given the opportunity to serve as the new president. I’ve been dodging it for the past three or four years but they caught me this time and I accepted the post as the president.”

“Now, tell us, what are some of your plans for your term?”

“Well we will continue doing our regular bingo and weekly barbecue. We have projects in the Mosquito Coast where we have a park down there and we are renovating it and putting more seating and palapas. We have all the tour guides who go up there when they have tourists so they use it as a park.”


Spain says that over recent years they’ve seen an increasing need for the club’s presence on the island. The first meeting of the new committee is set to take place in the upcoming weeks.
