Board Action

Lions Maryann Balland and Sue Brinthaupt are putting the final touches on our 30th Anniversary bash. There will be no entertainment for the event. This parallels the Elmira Clubs 75th anniversary bash, which was very successful. A memorabilia table will be organized. If you have anything to contribute, pictures, souvenirs, to the table call Maryann or Sue. Our Committee is trying to keep the cost to under $20. The Board voted to donate $100 to the Big Flats Youth Basketball League. Mr. Larry Kotacska will be inducted into Lionism at our first meeting.
