Lion President Bob Brewer
Well, this is my last newsletter as your club president. It has been a great year. We did exactly what we were supposed to do, “We Served” our community. I want to thank the membership as well as my board. Without the support of all of you , we would not have had the success we did.
For a change, we had a slightly less busy month of May. Of course, we had our usual breakfast at the Senior Center, we worked the Scholarship Awards Banquet on the 5th and I had the honor of presenting, for the Elk Grove Lions Club, two scholarships to a couple of great high school seniors. We also worked the Sheldon High School Senior Breakfast and the Adriani Elementary School Pancake Breakfast on the 23rd.
As we move into the month of June, my last month as your President, we will need your help at several events. To start the month off, we will be doing the senior center breakfast on the same morning that we will be setting up to work the Spotlight BBQ at Mosher Ranch where we handle the parking and the cooking so it will be a full day of work to support the Scholarship Foundation. If you are available on the 11th of June, please check with Lion Jim to assist at the breakfast, or Lion Joe Tallerico to assist at the BBQ.
Last of all, I hope all of you will be at our installation dinner on June 27th at the Senior Center. Lion Dave Ogden will be handling the job as head cook and PDG Erv Gon will be our master of ceremonies. Let’s all be there to help incoming president Lion Jack Edwards get a great start.
The last event of the month will be parking control at the Elk Grove Run 4 Hunger at Elk Grove Park in support of the Elk Grove Food Bank on the 25th of June.
