Lion President Sharon Mika
As I write my last message as your president, I can’t believe how the time has flown by! I’ve heard someone say the days are long and the years are short. How true this is for me! I’m humbled and honored to have held the position as your first female president. And I of course could not have done it without the help of the board and its membership. I thank you for your service and support!
We have slowed down quite a bit for this month. Our dinner meetings for the month of June are on the 11th and 25th at the Senior Center, with the installation of your incoming president, Lion Brad Dano on the 25th. Also at the senior center we will have our pancake breakfast on June 9th and our board meeting on June 18th.
On June 10th, we will assist the Elk Grove Regional Scholarship Foundation with the Bounty on the Boulevard fundraising dinner held outside at Old Town Plaza, serving as bartenders and helping with parking.
The Pride of Laguna Creek Lions Club is celebrating their 25th anniversary on June 15th at Laguna Town Hall. We are cooking and serving drinks to help with the celebration. Please check with Lion Andy to assist with this dinner. The last event of the month will be parking control on June 23rd for the Elk Grove Run 4 Hunger; contact Lion Jack if you can help with this event.
Thank you once again for a memorable term as President. I’m filled with pride to be a small part of such a big hearted group of people!

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.
