Are you comfortable with computers? Would you be interested in volunteering some time?
As you may be aware the Hants County Senior Safety Association is partnering with the West Hants Learning Networks to deliver Computer Basics for Seniors. The workshops are free and the idea is to have seniors learn at their own pace and be more comfortable with technology, the internet and social media. (poster is attached)
We are looking for a few seniors who already work with computers and IPAD’s to come in to the centre for a few hours and assist the instructor. So really, it would be ‘seniors mentoring seniors!’
If you are interested and would like more information please give me a call at 902-300-1459

The HANTSPORT & DISTRICT LIONS CLUB along with other Lions Clubs in Nova Scotia is involved in a USED SLEEP APNEA EQUIPMENT PROGRAM in Association with the Lung Association of Nova Scotia to collect USED SLEEP APNEA EQUIPMENT such as Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) and Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP) machines that individuals no longer need. These machines would be then turned over to the Lung Association where they would be refurbished and donated to assist individuals with sleep apnea by providing them free of cost to those who cannot afford them by the Lung Association of Nova Scotia. Do you have a USED SLEEP APNEA EQUIPMENT you no longer need and wish to donate? If so, please contact any member of the Hantsport & District Lions Club.
Lions club members come together in this humorous hip hop video.
The lyrics focus on what wearing the yellow Lions club vest means to the community. Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That’s because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.
Our 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world’s largest service club organization.
