Board Action

A heart felt thanks to Lions Mary Ann Balland and Sue Brinkhaupt Their major effort created a 30th Anniversary Dinner we shall all remember. Thanks also, to all the Lions who contributed gifts for the door prizes. The State Convention is in Syracuse on May 19th-21st. The Club needs four members to attend to vote for Lion Ed Cordes. The Big Flats Valentine’s Day 5K Race was a success thanks to the help of 9 Club Lions who volunteered as Course Marshals. The Wineglass Running Club would like to thank Lions Al Redner, Guy Hendrickson, Mike and Grace Yanak, Don Williams, Larry Kotacska, Sue Brinkhaupt, Mary Ann Balland, and Jim Dubois. Because of their efforts the Wineglass Running Club has consented to assist us in a Community Days 5K Race. Arrangements are forthcoming.
