Our first Corn Beef & Cabbage dinner was last month. Thanks to Lion Taka taking the lead on this fundraising dinner, and with the help of many Lions, I think we had a pretty good turnout. We hope this event will become an annual fundraiser.
Our dinner meetings this month are on April 9th and the 23rd, with the board meeting on April 16th all at the Senior Center. As usual, we will have our monthly pancake breakfast at the Senior Center on the second Saturday of the month, April 14th. After the breakfast, Lion Brad and I are cleaning up our storage shed. We could use your help! If you can help please be at the Senior Center at 11:00.
April 21st we are helping at CSD’s Just Serve Day at the Rotary Grove in Elk Grove Park. Calling all Lions to help assist with preparation & serving the BBQ lunch. Hours are from 9:00 to 1:00. Thank you in advance for your help with this event as it is part of our contract with CSD.
The District 4-C5 Convention is in San Ramon – April 19th thru the 22nd. Your incoming President, Lion Brad Dano and myself will be attending. On April 27th we will help support James McKee Elementary with a spaghetti dinner fundraiser for Giovanni Gallegos. Lion Jay will lead the crew for this one.
Sheldon High School spaghetti feed is on April 28th, with Lion Brad as lead.
On April 29th, with Lion Jack and crew, we will once again be assisting with the Running of the Elk.
This month we will be voting for our new board. We still have a couple of positions to fill, maybe that’s you! Your Lions Club needs your support!
As a reminder to all Lion Chairs, please talk to your contact person at the event you are working. Remind them as we support them, sometimes year after year, that we would like their support at our fundraisers so that we may continue to be of service to our Community. Maybe you can reach out to the contacts you have helped this year already in hoping they will support our next big fundraiser, The Day of the Dead Carnitas Dinner, with the World Famous Chicken Drop!
The Big Day of Giving is coming up quick! Please lead family and friends to our website where there is a link. A big Thank you to Lion Joe & Lion Jack who have been working on this since last year.
And in closing, thank you for your continued support of the many activities the Elk Grove Lions Club help assist. We couldn’t do it without all of your help!

We are best known for fighting blindness — it’s part of our history as well as our work today. But we also volunteer for many different kinds of projects including disaster relief — across many borders. We serve youth. Our community projects often support local children and schools with new programs and resources. Internationally, we offer many programs.
We hope you will consider joining our club.
To become a Lion, you must be of good moral character and good reputation in our community.
