Bizzell LEOs Serve the Community

School has just started, and our Bizzell LEO Club has already participated in two community events, volunteering at the mobile food pantries in Anderson and for Grimes County. The heat does not stop our wonderful LEOs! They are excited for another year of service and fun!

Happy Easter!

If it's a holiday, you know our LEOs have a project in mind! For Easter, they put together baskets for our "adopted" family in the community. We could not be prouder of the sense of service and joy our LEOs bring to everything they do. Special thanks to our staff who donated to fill these baskets with candy and toys and to our Lion's Club sponsor, Geoff Horn, for delivering them!
