Lion President Bob Brewer
As usual, we had a busy month. Our March Crab Feed was held on the 5th. We had abut 240 paid guests. Thanks to all lions who assisted Lion Pancho in the kitchen as well as those who tended bar, sold tickets, and supported our club. We had a busy Senior Center Pancake Breakfast last month and Lion Andy and crew represented us well as the first annual sold out Soroptimist Club Martinis and Merriment event on the 18th of March.
Our Club’s speech contest winner has continued to move forward. She won the Zone contest and then won the Region contest. She is now moving forward to the District contest where she will compete with 3 other speakers, one speaker from each Zone. It will be held at the Sheriffs Community Room. Doors will open @ 6:30 with the contest starting at 7 pm on April 22nd. You are welcome to come support our winner.
As usual, your support at long list of activities, as well as our monthly meetings and our board meetings, is very much appreciated.
We have several items on the April calendar: Delta Lions Celtic Tea on April 2nd, Running of the Elk on April 3rd, Senior Center Breakfast on April 9th, Sheldon High School Sober Grad Spaghetti Dinner on April 9th, Franklin Elementary School Camp-out on April 22nd, District Student Speaker Contest on April 22nd, Hands Helping Hands on April 23rd, Clean up at the Senior Center Tea on April 23rd, Jesse Banker Lunch on April 27 & 28. Finally, the District Convention is in Reno, April 28- May 1.
The first order of business for the first April meeting is the election of a slate of new officers. Fortunately we did have nominees for each office. The new board will take office starting in July and they need to know that training is available for them to get off on the right foot.
