Club News

Our Annual Picnic went well. A many thanks go out to King Lion Donna, Lion Lance Muir, Lion Norval Johnston and Lion Pat Johnston for their efforts in making this event a success.

Lion Rita attended the picnic. It was good to see her out and about. She needs a chauffeur while she is still in a wheel chair. A sign up sheet will be passed around at the first meeting for volunteers to bring her to our Dinner Meetings. Lions Jim Adamy, Al Draht, and Don Williams gave Rita a helping hand and installed steps and hand rails for her.

The Community sign is expected to come down before school starts. Lion Gary Bernhardt is chairing this effort.

Two additional names were added to our prospective member's list.

Happy Birthday to Lion Marshall Updike, Sept. 1st, Lion Herb Cox, Sept. 2nd, and Lion Grace Yanak.
