Club News

Lions Walt Jacobus and Ray Conklin are still sick. Both are resting at home. Get well gentlemen! We all miss you at the meetings. The Antique Show was supported by 18 Lions putting in 84 hours of community service. Lion John Farr was in charge. There was some thought about obtaining younger help to supplement our efforts. The high school Key Club and Internet Club were mentioned. A local Leo Club wouldn't hurt in this area! Something to think about. Scouting for Food, brought in a record 4569 cans for the Big Flats Food Pantry on Nov. 20th. 17 Lions donated 65 hours to the effort. Lion John Hoos was in charge.

Happy Birthday to Lion Gary Bernhardt, Dec. 5th; Lion Skip Smith, Dec. 15th; and Lion Harry King, Dec. 21st.
