Hello Everyone: It looks like we made it through the Christmas Holiday as well as New Year’s Eve. Thanks again for all of your support in December. I know that we are all busy with our families, but all of you are very special in that you all take the time to give to our community. The Annual Crab Feed raised funds to allow us to continue to support the various projects that we do.
We had a great Christmas Party, and Lion Andy, even though he had a bit of a cold, was able to lead us in some great Christmas songs. Santa was a hit for the grandkids who were there with us.
A great time was had by all.
Also, thanks to Lion Don and Lion Jim for their continued work, along with their crew, to provide an outstanding pancake breakfast for the Senior Center each month.
I look forward to seeing all of you on the 14th of January for the meeting of the 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.
