BARKER — The Barker Food Pantry was recently awarded the Robert J. Uplinger Award by the Barker Lions Club.

Established in 1993, the award honors outstanding Lions and non-Lions or organizations who perform exemplary service to a Club, district, or community. These honorees possess the highest examples of Lionistic character, ideals, purpose, and service. The award cannot be purchased by an individual-it must be presented as a recognition of the recipient's service.

Steven Haight represented the Food Pantry at the July 25 meeting, thanking the Lions for their help over the years, then went on to tell the group how many families the pantry is currently helping. One more recent addition is a clothing closet. The Barker Food Pantry is housed at Faith United Methodist Church. Donations for the Pantry and Clothing Closet are always welcome.

Newly installed President Fran Costello pointed out that “The Barker Lions are proud to help this vital service to our community. Lions motto is ‘We Serve’ and this is one way we can help our community overcome some of its challenges.”

The Barker Lions hold a general meeting on the first Wednesday of the month from September until June. Guests are always welcome. Those wishing to make a presentation to the club, contact the Lions at or call 778-7001.
