Light Up the Holidays is just around the corner!

The East Haddam Community Lions are once again working with the Rathbun Free Memorial Library to "Light Up the Holidays." If you or your organization would like to create a holiday decoration or gift for the event, please contact Lion Linda Bradshaw at

The donated items will be exhibited in Rathbun Free Memorial Library, from November 26th
- December 7th during this time advertising and a catalogue will be distributed.  A silent auction will take place (viewers can bid on exhibits anytime during this period). Once again we will host a Holiday Reception on Friday December 7th 7-9pm where final bids will take place.  All donations will be acknowledged in the program and again on signage where exhibits are displayed.

All proceeds from this community-wide fund raiser will go to The East Haddam Fuel Bank, Food Bank and Youth and Family Services. Over the last four years of holding this event the East Haddam Community Lions with your help have donated in excess of $25,000 to these causes. The money raised helped so many, providing heating fuel, food and gifts for the children of families in need, here, in our community … things that many of us take for granted. We Lit-up their Holidays and warmed our own hearts too.

Join in the holiday spirit and help the Community Lions and the Rathbun Library light up the holidays!
