During the COVID-19 pandemic shut down Shawnee Lions Club has assisted the community in numerous ways and after three months of meeting virtually, the club has returned to their regular meeting schedule.

According to Shawnee Lions Club President Greg Arbuckle, at the moment the club has no plans to make any more meal deliveries which they have been doing over the last several months.

Arbuckle said during the pandemic the Lions helped the community in a variety of ways including delivering meals for React employees for three days, donated $150 to Legacy Parenting and delivered snacks to three nursing and assisted living centers.

"We finished that off with a ‘picnic in the park’ this past Saturday, May 30 for members," Arbuckle said. "We wanted members to have an opportunity to get together again after 10 weeks of not meeting in person. Meeting outside gave us an opportunity to practice ‘social distancing’ while still enjoying getting together."
