After last month’s busy calendar of events, it seeps kind of slow by comparison for this month. I guess everyone was enjoying the great summer weather at their favorite vacation spots.
As usual we started off the month with the Senior Center Pancake Breakfast which was held on August 11th. Lion Jim and Lion Don lead the cooking crew through a particularly larger breakfast service which was brought on by the Costco Membership drive being held in the lobby of the Senior Center. I cannot say for certain, but I do believe this was one of the largest turnouts for this event. We served 252 adults in a two hour period.
Thanks to the Lions who were able to assist Lion Jim and Lion Don at that event.

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.
