From Lion Sam:

Here is a fun thing to do with the family during the holiday week.  We are coordinating a session to pack meals for needy children. It’s December 28 when your kids and grandchildren will be home.  It’s at the “ Feed My Starving Children” facility near Woodfield Mall, 1072 National Parkway, Schaumburg, IL 60173.  It’s at 6 pm, so go shopping at have dinner at Woodfield during the day and drive over and volunteer for children that are less fortunate. Let me know if you and the family can make it so we can get a count.

Trunk and Treat Event from Lion Sue

Our Cub Scouts celebrated the Trunk and Treat event that was held on October 20 at Erickson School.  The kids had a great time.  Thanks Lion Sue!

Trunk-or-treat is the newest craze for churches, youth groups, and Scout troops. The kids walked from car-to-car in a parking lot and trick-or-treat. To add to the fun, people decorated their car trunks. Some even dressed up to complement their car theme as well. As the Scouts walked around the parking lot, they received candy from each car owner. 

It's a safer form of trick-or-treating since only Scout parents and Lions were parked in the parking lot.  This was for the Cub Scout pack that we sponsor.

Lion Bill Wolff was honored with a Bloomingdale School District 13 Community Exemplar Award at the September 25 meeting of the Board of Education for the school district.  The Community Exemplar Award is intended to recognize a citizen of the greater learning community of Bloomingdale School District 13 who makes an outstanding contribution to positively impact both the school district and Bloomingdale.  As you are aware, Lion Bill consistently volunteers to serve in many ways, and it was a well deserved honor.

Congratulations Lion Bill!

Septemberfest Update from Lion Stan

Lion Stan extends his greatest appreciation for all of the Lions that helped during SeptemberFest. Your hard work and sometimes long hours is a testimony of why this club is such a pleasure in which to be a member.

The figures have not been finalized yet but right now we have an approximate net profit of about $7,000. We even were able to sell 8 raffle tickets. None of this could have happened without your cooperation, dedication and unbelievable effort. I am really proud of our club and its members. Thank you all and God bless.
 
Thanks for all your hard work setting up the Lion's Beer/Wine space at Septemberfest, Lion Stan!
