The weather continues to warm and we are now only one month away from the installation of our 2019/2020 officers. The grass is green and growing wildly and if the rain continues, I’ll have to mount my outboard motor on my mower in order to mow the lawn. May is a very busy month for the Granville Lions.


Furniture sales start on Friday May 3rd so make sure you all check the schedule.  If anyone needs a replacement, remember to do so in a timely manner. Also make sure the replacement you get can accomplish the duties that you perform.


The locks on the warehouses have been rekeyed and all team leaders and co-team leaders will have keys as well as those individuals that do the sales week settlements and deposits every week during the sales season.


Thanks for all the work cleaning, putting together table and chair packages, restocking, and rearranging the warehouses on Saturday April 27th, our first annual warehouse cleanup day. Thanks to the following Lions who helped me: Roger Ellis, Ron Barrett, Molly Celani, Elaine Tardie, Al Whitcomb, and Jim Roberts.


May 3rd through the 5th is the District 45 Lions Convention in Rutland, VT. Many of our members will be attending and we are hoping for it to be a great success. Lion Molly has been spending countless hours to ensure that this convention will be the best ever.


Our last dinner meeting of the 2018/2019 year will be Tuesday May 7th at the West Main Grille. Social will be at 6:00 with dinner at 6:30. We will have a mystery guest speaker who I know you will find entertaining and you will learn a great deal from the talk. Please let Lion Molly or me know if you will be attending or not as soon as possible.


The Habitat for Humanity House on Potter Ave. will be built on May 18th and 19th. Our Club shift is from 12-5 on May 18th and they have allocated 10 slots for the Lions. We have asked for volunteers to fill those slots but as of now we only have seven, Lions: Jim Peterson, Ron, Bill, Doc, Roger, Al, and myself. Please get in touch with me ASAP if you can help out and fill the other three slots.


Our next Board of Directors meeting will be at Lion Roger’s house on May 21st at 6:00 for a light meal with the meeting to follow at 6:30.


For planning purposes our installation of officers for the 2019/2020 season will be on Tuesday June 4th at the West Main Grille. The cost will be $25 for members and guests. Social with hors d’oeuvres will be at 6:00 with dinner at 6:30.


I am still waiting on the committee standard operating procedures from most of the activity committee chairmen. I have received the procedures from the Arbor Day and Sunshine committees. The procedures for the Scholarship committee were just re-written and are in the Club procedure manual. All other committee chairmen need to complete these procedure reports and get them to me this month.


I will be forming next year’s committees in June so I need inputs from all members on what committees you are interested in and want to be on. Every committee will have a chairman and co-chairman so if you are interested in these positions please let me know ASAP. Even if you have been chairman of a committee for years…I still need to hear from you.
