NATOMA -- For several decades, the Natoma Lions Club enthusiastically has brought "glad tidings" for a Merry Christmas.

Bright red poinsettias and warm greetings are gifted to all current or former Natoma residents who are 80 years and older. Widows of former Lions members also are included.

Covering a radius of more than 50 miles, the distribution covers three counties including the cities of Natoma, Plainville, Russell, Osborne and Hays.

Forty deliveries brought warmth, good cheer and joy for a Merry Christmas and blessed New Year.

For information on the project, contact Lion Terry Tucker at (785) 885-4116.
