Thanks to all of the members of our club, we had a great November as we served the Elk Grove Community. We started off the month with our service to the Senior Center of Elk Grove with our monthly Pancake Breakfast.
We supported our local veterans by providing 1000 hotdogs and buns. Our friends at the Rotary did the cooking and the Optimist club donated additional food as well.
We spent a large part of the month getting ready for our annual Shrimp and crab feed.
One of the best parts of working with our local partners was that we were able to garner additional support from our Strauss partners for our December Crab and Shrimp Feed. The ultimately purchased in person or online a total of 24 tickets. Thank you very much to Jackie Lewis for all you do to support the Lions Club.
As usual, the club had a great Thanksgiving Dinner thanks to Lion Jim Switzgable. We are looking forward to Lion Don Thompson preparing our Christmas Dinner next month.
