Lion’s community involvement in Unity Week

As part of our Lion’s community involvement in Unity Week this year, many Lions attended a service at the Bensalem African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church on January 18th at 1200 Bridgewater Road, Bensalem. This is one of the early churches founded in the AME denomination. Food/refreshments were provided to approximately 200 supporters in Bensalem Township.
