Camden — The Camden Lions donated $500 toward the continuation of Connections, a program directed at third- to fifth-grade children.

State funding for Connections were diverted to other programs, according to founder/director Hank Lunn, hence the need for operational funds.

The Connections Program is designed for boys and girls with their parents or other significant adult role models in the children’s lives. The program provides an enjoyable special time by either eating a simple healthy meal together, engaging in a short discussion about making healthy choices or play using non-competitive team building activities for both children and adults.

The public may participate three evenings a month between 6 and 8 p.m. at Penobscot Bay YMCA in Rockport. There is no charge for this program; however, registration is required before Friday prior to each series by calling Nancy at 236-6313, ext. 2.

“This is another organization that the Camden Lions has donated to with funds derived from their Bottles and Cans Recycling Program," said Lions President Nikki Bland.
