THE LEXINGTON LIONS CLUB NEEDED SOME HELP WITH THE EYEGLASSES THAT THEY COLLECT, SO WE (LABBB) WERE EVER SO WILLING TO LEND A HAND!

 WORKING WITH LION JOHN LUCENTE, WE CAME UP WITH A PLAN TO LINK THE LABBB WORKSHOP AND TRAINING CENTER WITH THE MIDDLESEX SHERIFF DEPARTMENT. 020024  NOW WE ARE SORTING, COUNTING, WASHING AND DELIVERING GLASSES.

THESE  EYE GLASSES ARE DROPPED IN A LIONS CLUB DONATION BOX, NEXT THEY GO TO THE LABBB WORKSHOP AND TRAINING CENTER,WHERE THEY ARE SORTED, COUNTED,WASHED AND BAGGED. NEXT WE DELIVER TO AL PARE AT THE MIDDLESEX SHERIFF DEPARTMENT. THEY ARE THEN READ AND MARKED WITH THE ACCURATE PRESCRIPTION,AND INDIVIDUALLY BAGGED. OUR STUDENTS THEN PICK UP AND DELIVER TO THE LEXINGTON LIONS CLUB WHERE THEY ARE DISTRIBUTED TO THE NEEDY AROUND THE GLOBE.001

We welcomed new students,and filled our days with a variety of tasks, crafting and learning……..

2013!

Now it is time to take a deep breath and look at some of our accomplishments.

The Annual Best Buddies Craft Fair was a huge success with over 60 crafters even the snow couldn’t  keep the crowds away.

Our Workshop Training Center  craft table sold out of earrings, pins and wreaths as well as our signature missing pieces jewelry. To all those who attended or contributed  in any way THANK-YOU!!!!

“LET US SHRED 4 U”is picking up business due to the new year, don’t forget it’s still only .25 cents per lb.

Buckle Boss has added another step to their product. We now package and ship to different places around the country. This allows our students to learn to count,package into large boxes and deliver to Fedex.

HERE IS WHAT SOME OF OUR STUDENTS HAVE TO SAY ………

Dear Mrs. Paz

A day at Work means, I will have good behavior,head up,and sit in my seat. I like to stuff envelopes,I like to collate. I like to fold, I like to do the mail sort and file. I like to draw,color and look at magazines during breaks. I like to cut out appropriate clothes for a collage we are making. Try Workshop, I like it!

Melanie

I like coming to the Workshop Training Center because I like doing the sorting of the beads with all my friends,Owen,MoMo,Corwin,Lisa and Mrs. Marilyn Jones. I like working with Mrs. Paz. I like to stuff envelopes.
