‘Head Start’ Featured At March 24 Fulton Lions Meeting

Heather Crofoot, education community services assistant for Oswego County Opportunities, (left), was guest speaker at the Fulton Lions Club March 24 meeting. She is joined by Fred Aldrich, club president. Crofoot presented an overview of the federally funded Head Start Pre-Kindergarten program serving more than 200 children, aged 3-4-years, throughout Oswego County. Head Start is provided at no cost to families with incomes at or below federally set income guidelines, and its primary goal is to promote school readiness by enhancing the social and cognitive development of children. The Fulton club is one of the largest and most active in their district. Lions clubs are committed to sight and hearing preservation. The Fulton Lions Club, also know for their Lions Loot Sweepstakes and Labor Day Duck Derby, provides financial assistance for those in need of eyeglasses, eye exams and hearing aids to residents in the Greater Fulton area.
