On April 26th and 27th, 2013, the Hamilton Lions Club participated in the filming of a video about our Boomerang Backpack project to be shown during the International Convention in Hamburg, Germany. The filming took place over 2 days at the Hamilton Community School buildings and included interviews with both Lions and community members, as well as families served by the Boomerang Backpack project. The video also included the Hamilton Life Skills class, along with their teacher, teachers aides and student helpers, who pack the backpacks every week. The Boomerang Backpack Project is a true community project spearheaded by the Lions Club and involving other community organizations. To view the video, please click on the picture. The Hamilton Lions appear at 1:20 of the video.
