The Leo Club at Cape Henlopen High School is now conducting its 8th annual mulch fundraiser.
The club’s name is an acronym for leadership, experience and opportunity. “The Leo Club currently has about 136 student members who dedicate a significant amount of their time to volunteering throughout our community,” said Mike Connors, Leo Club advisor. “Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit the club and its many projects throughout the community.” The letters in the club’s name stand for leadership, experience and opportunity.
