Peace posters, apple sales, blood drives on Leos' list of things to do

Did you know we have the student version of Lions Clubs at our middle schools and high schools?

These Leo Clubs are off to a great start this fall. North Kitsap High had 35 kids turn out at its first meeting Sept. 13. The new advisor is Shannon Singleton. At Kingston High, 22 kids turned out at the first meeting Sept. 11. Lion Karl Ostheller is the advisor with help from KHS teacher Kim Smith. Kate Ebert is the advisor again at Poulsbo Middle School, where 38 kids turned out. They're already starting work on "Kindness Matters" Peace Posters. And at Kingston Middle School, Stephanie Robinson is the advisor. That club will start this month.

These kids have plans for a fall blood drive, anti-bullying and Kindness Matters posters, stuffing dental gift bags, working at Centennial Park and Fish Park, and trick-or-treating for the food bank. NKHS Leos just finished their first fund-raiser - they sold 32 boxes of Fuji apples, clearing $320!
