The Lompoc Vision

“Good News You Can Use.”


Life In The Vandenberg Village Lions Den


by Kathy Cady, VVLC Publicity Chairwoman

The Vandenberg Village Lions Club members were feeling

like we needed to do something, ANYTHING, amid these diffi-

cult times to bring cheer to those who are shut in and lonely. So

in May, we delivered beautiful, scenic, heartfelt, “Thinking of

You” cards to the residents of the Comprehensive Care Center


The residents are quite lonely, missing their family and friends

and are restricted to their rooms during this difficult time. We

wanted them to know that, although we don’t know them per-

sonally, we care about them and that they matter.

The cards were designed and created by Lions Steve Heur-

ing and Ann McCarty. President Rebecca Abillie delivered the

cards to Michele Hunt, Activities Director at the CCC. Presi-

dent Rebecca also delivered face masks that she handmade.

man Lion Steve Straight.

Watkins’ poster was among more than 450,000 entries submitted worldwide in the annual Lions International Peace

Poster Contest. Lions Clubs International sponsors the program to allow young people to express their visions of peace

through art.

The poster was selected for its originality, artistic merit and portrayal of the contest theme, “Journey of Peace”.

Peace Poster Contest Chairman Steve Straight said he was impressed by the expression and creativity of the students

who were under the direction of Art Teacher Ian Pendry and Vice-Principal Barbara Courain. Vandenberg Village Lions

Club members appreciate that these young people have strong ideas about what peace means to them. And we are proud

to be able to provide them with the opportunity to share their visions.

We are very sorry to say that due to the Covid-19 we will have to cancel the sum-

mer July 17-18th Friends of the Library Book Sale. We hope to be back in business

for October 16-17th sale and that all of you are ready to stock up your shelves again.

You probably have read a lot of books during this time and will be ready to restock.

Everyone stay well and see you then
