BARNEY AND BETTY BUT NO FRED J.R. McDonald of the Wrentham Lions Club in Massachusetts and partner Jillian Wojnowski perform a Barney and Betty Rubble cave man stomp during a Dancing Stars competition. The couple did not win but drew lots of laughter and applause. The Wrentham Lions raised nearly half of the $50,000 generated by the event, held by a group of women in town to benefit charities. Three dance studios held rehearsals for participants. “This is a perfect example of a Lions club taking full advantage of a fundraiser that fell in our laps. We didn’t even put it on,” says Greg Stahl. The Lions club donated part of its revenue to each of the five other community groups in the competition as well as to other causes. Wrentham has historical importance to Lions: Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan once lived here.
