For several months, a small group has been working with Royal B. Sheldon, district extension chairman for Lions Club International, to start a chapter of the volunteer organization.
The group hopes to meet later this month to firm things up and get more members.
There have been efforts to set up a meeting all summer, but conflicting schedules have thwarted them so far.
"It's kind of slow, but I think that's because there are so many things going on this summer," Mr. Sheldon
"Later this month, we'll get them invited and have them show up and tell them what we're trying to do."
After the town's Homecoming celebrations this past weekend, Mr. Sheldon
hopes the group will have more luck.
Now is the time to bring it back, according to Mr. Sheldon
, who began the efforts from his
home in Norfolk.
"It's something the Waddington community could really benefit from," he
"There are people who would like to see more activities centered around the community arena."
In addition to planning activities for residents, the Lions could help people in need with such things as getting eyeglasses or vision tests, something the Lions are known for doing.
"We just help out people who need the support," said Mr. Sheldon
, who has been a Lion for nearly 40 years.
