Sometimes you need a little help get by. The Mount Washington Lions Club recently answered that call for the Mount Washington Historical Society.
The Lions presented a check for $600 to the group to help with repairs on the Llyod House where they have their meetings.
The Lions had a fish fry at the end of August to raise the funds.
Lion president Harold Smith said it was their way of helping out. This is the second fish fry that they have done for the group.
Greg Hilbert, president of the MW Historical Society, said he's grateful to the Lions for their effort to help continue to sustain an important piece of history.
"I grew up here and there are very few houses left in town that are that old. If you don't preserve your history then it's lost," he said.
The house, which was built in the 1880s, has needed new paint and roof work amoung other items.
It contains a lot of local artifacts and antiques, Hilbert said, which is open to the public. They still hold events there such as teas and the Christmas Open House.
"It's not the only thing we do, but it's our baby so we take care of it," he said.
The historical society meets twice a month at the house on the first and third Tuesdays at 7 p.m.
The Lions Club will present the check to the society at their Monday night meeting at the Bill Breedan Building. The Lions also meet on the third Monday of the month at 6:30 p.m.
