September was another busy month for the Elk Grove Lions Club. Of course, we cooked and served the monthly breakfast for the Elk Grove Senior Center on the morning of September 14. Later that afternoon, several Lions provided parking support for the Elk Grove Food Bank at their Harvest of Hope event at the Sheldon Inn.
On the 20th, several Lions joined up to provide a Spaghetti Feed for the Arnold Adriani Elementary School PTA.
We had planned on supplying tables and chairs for the American Legion’s PIO-MIA Day to Remember on September 21st, but they were able to obtain chairs from CSD so we helped with their setup and takedown. It was a very moving event.
We also supported the Historical Society’s Pinkerton Picnic in the Park on the 22nd of September by providing one of our BBQs for them. Thanks Lion Warren Weaver for getting it done.
On the 26th, several Lions joined up with our own Warren Weaver to cook for the Map The Future event at Elk Grove Park for the local high school career day event.

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.
