As we move towards Christmas I want to again tell all of you how much I appreciate your support. I am just now coming up to the half way point of my term as your President and have been honored by all you do for me, the club and our community. In just a couple of days, we will have our Annual Crab and Shrimp Feed. Thanks to all who has worked hard through November to get us ready for this major fundraiser, the last one of the year.
I hope most of you will be able to attend our Annual Christmas dinner that is coming up in a couple of weeks. Make sure to bring your partner, kids and grandkids. Santa will be there to make an even more special night. We can expect Lion Andy, the only one of us who can really sing, lead us in Christmas songs to call for the arrival of Santa with a great rendition of “Here Comes Santa Clause.”
I know that many of you are very busy this month but I hope that you take some time to join your fellow Lions at the Christmas parties throughout the month. What a wonderful time to visit and share the holiday season without having to be working a special event.
See you all next year, and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

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.
