~/assets/uploads/schools/abbott/images/Parents%20and%20Students/Leo.jpgThe Abbott Tech Leo Club is a community service club affiliated with the Danbury Lions Club. We meet the first and third Thursday of every month during the school year, where we plan fundraisers and community service projects. A liaison from the Lion’s Club attends our meetings. Our goal is to complete one project per month.
