A timely community service project
4 Norwich Lions members help out at the Norwich Public Library
Someone in the Norwich Lions den heard a rumor that Lucinda Walker had 5 benches that needed to be put together, and was wondering if the Lions could help. He brought up the idea of a community service project at our Tuesday night meeting and , the Lion asked the "pride" if they thought they could spare a few members to assist with this project. Four Lions immediately volunteered and showed up at the Norwich Library on Wednesday morning to find 10 large cardboard boxes containing all the needed parts to complete the bench project. After some much needed contemplation in the new contemplation area we immediately opened up the cartons, laid out all the parts and even attempted to read the instructions. The mission was accomplished with not too much fanfare within a couple of hours.
Creating a contemplation area is a great solution for those looking to nature for stress relief. These specific types of garden spaces focus on incorporating many different elements such as earth, water, wind, movement and space in order to achieve balance in one's life.
