Lion President Brad Dano


It is difficult to realize that I have only one more issue of the Stag to tell you what we are doing and to say thanks to our members for their support.

Over the past month, we have been busy as usual. We went through the process of selecting our new board of directors for the coming year. Congratulations on all of our members who volunteered or accepted the nominations to serve the club in the coming year.

We also sent out renewal notices for our members so that we would start the new fiscal year with all our dues paid up before the start of the year. 

As usual, there are several activities that our members are working on had have worked on since the last Stag. Of course, there was the Senior Center Breakfast on the second Saturday of April and we are getting ready for the one in May. Several Lions have volunteered to help the Senior Center with their Butterfly Tea on April 20th. Lion Jey and crew worked the Jesse Baker Games on the 25th and 26th of April and the kids loved the hotdogs and burgers.

As we moved into May, we had our Big Day of Giving fundraiser thanks to Lion Jack and his crew. We received a little over $3,000 in donations. That same day, May 2nd, Lion Warren and his crew are scheduled to work at the Spotlight on Scholars event for the Elk Grove Regional Scholarship Foundation. There are several more events scheduled in May, like the county fair, and I know you will all step up to help the lead Lion as needed.

To finish the month of April off in style, I along with some of the new board members, attended the annual 4C5 conference. Thanks for being there to support our club.

Thanks again for all you have done this past year to make my term as your President so successful.

President’s Message UpArrowPurple

Lion President Brad Dano


As you can tell when you read the minutes below, we have had a very busy month since the last Stag was published, but before I get into all that we have been doing and what we have scheduled over the next couple of weeks, I do want to ask you to help the club with it’s fundraiser, The Big Day Of Giving. It is on May 2nd. It is a 24 hour effort to raise money for the club. You can tell your friends about it and ask them to support us. There is a piece on the website to tell you all about it. You can ask Lion Jack for a graphic that you can add to Facebook, or you can just look at our Facebook page and share the event and share the piece about this fundraiser with all of your contacts on Facebook.This is one fundraiser that you don’t have to work at, but you do need to work at telling all of your friends about it.

Now, on to the busy month. As usual, we supported the Senior Center with their 2nd Saturday Pancake Breakfast. The winner of our Student Speaker Contest, Kathy Le, competed at the Zone level at the Falls Event Center on the 13th and won. She competed again at the Region level Student Speaker Contest where she again won the contest. She is now headed to the District level contest. If you can be there on the 20th at noon, please plan to attend. 7000 65th Street at the Sheriff’s substation west of the old Florin Mall. 

Our members again participated in several community events. We assisted with the Soroptimist of Elk Grove’s Martinis and Merriment fundraiser on the 22nd of March. On the 23rd, we cooked at the Pasta Feed at Sheldon High School. Also on the 23rd, we provided parking assistance to the Early California Days Event at Elk Grove Park.

We have several events coming up during the early part of April. Please make sure to step up to assist at the Pleasant Grove Elementary PTA dinner, the Walk to Remember and the Running of the Elk.  We also have the Just Serve day in Elk Grove Park on the 13th of April and we need to have about a half dozen Lions to assist with cutting up watermelons, tomatoes and onions and serving the volunteers.  Later on April 20th, the Senior Center will need a few volunteers for the Butterfly Tea. . 

One very important activity that is ongoing now is the selection of potential officers for our club for the coming year. We have been announcing the need for volunteers or nominees who will run. Please consider stepping up when asked so that our club will continue to be the club that serves the people of our community of Elk Grove.

Thanks for your support over this past year,

Brad

Lion President Brad Dano


We rested a bit in January, but were back to full steam in February. Thanks to Lions Don and Jim and their crew for handling the pancake breakfast at the Senior Center. Lion Warren and crew, along with a potential new member, Stan, worked the Annual Spaghetti Feed at Markofer Elementery school. We also worked the Pack 179 Blue and Gold banquet and the Burgers and Brew at the Elk Grove Pavilion. 

Lion John and Lion Jack handled a great student speaker contest and we sent a repeat winner to the Sutter Zone contest on March 5th. Congratulations to Kathy Le.

We voted in two new members, Stan Pochop and Lyndon King. Congratulations and welcome aboard.
