Mattapoisett Lions Club Scholarship

To the Editor:

Amy Mello, President of the Mattapoisett Lions Club, one of 45,000 Lions Clubs around the world, has announced the two recipients of the 2018 Peter Hodges Memorial Scholarship sponsored by the Mattapoisett Lions Club in the amount of $2,500 each.

This year’s recipients are Alexandra Hulsebosch of Mattapoisett, a senior at Old Rochester Regional High School and Alisha Mackin of Rochester, also a senior at Old Rochester Regional High School. Alexandra will be attending Boston College in the fall majoring in economics, and Alisha will be attending University of Massachusetts at Amherst majoring in animal science.

Both are recognized for their outstanding work in community service, their career goals, and academic records.

Over the past eight years, the members of the Mattapoisett Lions Club have awarded $40,000 in scholarships to thirteen recipients. These awards would not be possible without the strong community and town departments’ support we’ve received over the years.

Funds for these awards are raised through the efforts of the Mattapoisett Lions at our annual Harbor Days Arts and Crafts Festival and other events throughout the year. To find out more information about the Mattapoisett Lions Club and how to join, please visit us at and follow us on Facebook.
