Saugerties Lions Club’s annual holiday fundraiser cancelled

The Saugerties Lions Club’s annual November auction, one of its main fundraisers, is cancelled this year due to Covid-19. “That said, programs still have to be funded and needs still have to be met,” said Fran Andreassen. The club serves the local community through various projects and donations that benefit individuals, charities and local benevolent organizations. The club’s goal for 2020 is to raise $20,000.
