Meetings

Hello Fellow Lions,

The officers want to thank all Lions who brought two cans of food to every meeting. In September we collected 88 cans, and in October we collected 65 cans. Greentown Wesleyan Church picked up these canned goods and were very thankful for them.  Our motto says, “WE SERVE”.  Again, THANK YOU

On September 10, Civil War Historian, Craig Dunn, talked about photography during the Civil War in America. Craig had over 1,500 old civil war military photos on display, with some worth over $500 each. He stated that the Confederate Cvil War photos are worth more than the Union photos due to the financial state of the solders in the Confederate Army.

On September 12, Zone Chairman, Lion Wayne Sozansky, and I attended 25-D District Zone meeting. We learned how to help area Lions clubs serve their communities better and increase their membership. 

On September 24, we heard from Urban Outreach Director, Jeff Newton. He said this ministry is not about giving fish (food) to a needy family but is showing the family how to catch the fish (food) they need. This approach has helped many families depend on themselves instead of relying on others to meet their needs.

On October 4, Lions Jean Ann Wise, Dave Shearer, Tom Moor, Henry Rodriquez, Chairman Dave Mohring, and Mike Imbler eye screened over 295 Eastern first, third, and fifth graders. Eye screening is needed in our county and area schools because 18.3% of tested students showed a need to see an optometrist. We are looking at eye screening for other area schools. If you would like to help, let Lion Dave Mohring know.

On October 6, some of the club officers attended 25-D Banner Night in Marion, In. It was fun seeing the District Banner being passed from the past District Governor to the new District Governor Isabel Atcheson. We met many other Lions from other Lion clubs in our District and state.  On October 8, District 25-D Governor Isabel Atcheson spoke to our club about the goals of Lions International and 25-D District. She presented many of our members with Service Chevrons. Lions Bryon Shockley and Ferris Petty received a 55 years of Service Chevron. Lion Gary White received a 30 year Service Chevron, and Lion Tom Moor received a 31 year award for perfect attendance. See photos in the newsletter. Wow, what an example for us to follow!

IT IS GREAT TO BE A LION,
Lion Mike Imbler, President
