We just wrapped up our annual Crab & Shrimp feed held at the SES Hall on December 2nd; Lion Brad took lead and with plenty of Lions to assist we provided another successful dinner.
Our Thanksgiving Dinner with friends & family was a delicious as usual! Our November board meeting was cancelled due to a conflict with the Zone Meeting held on the same night. We change things up a bit for December with our board meeting on the 11th and our Christmas dinner for family on December 18th; Lion Jim will take charge along with assistance from fellow Lions to provide our feast. Following tradition we will make a donation to the Elk Grove Food Bank for our December meal. Please bring cash or a check payable to the Elk Grove Food Bank Services for $10.00 or more.
The monthly pancake breakfast held at the Senior Center will be on December 9th, along with biscuits and gravy, a popular addition to the breakfast.
For our next big fundraiser, we will be trying something new to replace the Crab & Shrimp feed held in March. A corned beef & cabbage dinner will be held on March 17th, 2018 at the Pavilion in Elk Grove Park. We are still working out the details but we are excited for this new idea!
Lion John Jr. is working with Chili’s to set up a day for a percentage of your meal to go to the Elk Grove Lions Club. Tentative date is January 24th.
Don’t forget to save your recyclables for funds to go towards supporting our youth in the area at the Sacramento County Fair. A big thank you to Lion Andy for handling the collections.
To each and all a very Merry Christmas!

Lions are in 200 countries and geographic areas. We have 45,000 clubs with over 1.3 million members world wide. We have a dynamic history. 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.
Membership is by invitation.
