As usual, we started off the year with a couple of projects in January. Thanks to the members for stepping up and assisting us with our projects. We had our usual pancake breakfast on the second Saturday, thanks to Lions Jim and Don and crew. Lion Warren and his crew managed the Pleasant Grove Tri-Tip dinner on the 26th. We have also had a couple of potential new members at our meetings and projects. Looking forwarding to inducting them into the club in February.

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.
